My Pinebook Pro after a month of use.

I am learning a new language that I can speak to other humans rather than machines. I am happy about the price I paid for the Pinebook. Overall unless you are fluent in Linux code the machine can be rather a nightmare. Occasional screen flickering. Weak or no sound output. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sometimes works. The screen output blacks out for a few seconds and then returns all the time. My connected hard drives and flash drives do not always respond and well...If you enjoy writing Linux code this machine is probably a dream for you. For average humans this machine is somewhat a disappointment. Developers if you want a machine that introduces Linux novices to the wonderful world of Linux this machine needs lots of work. Peace.
Sorry you feel that way. I understand that not knowing why something is not working how it's supposed to can be frustrating. 

What software are you using? Linux comes in many different distributions, or "distros" each containing different layers of programming. Some distros may work better than others.  When I got my pinebook pro it came with Debian. I've since switched to Manjaro and have found it works better and more consistently.  Maybe a change of distro may help you?  Do you need help figuring out how to do that?
