Would a Pinebook Pro be good for a Linux newbie?
#7
Probably the best entry linux device is a used Windows laptop. You can grab them off Facebook Marketplace or eBay for under $100.

The PBP is a pretty good “just works” device, but with it being lower powered and arm just being a bit quirky, it might be better served as the first device you buy after you learn linux.
