Why two power ports on a budget laptop??
#1
Question 
First of all, I really like the PB Pro and I love what you're doing for the open source community.

However, I can't help but wonder why you included two charging ports on the Pinebook pro. The USB-C port is in the middle of the connector lineup, meaning that powering it over USB-C is going to nearly prevent you from using that USB port right behind it. And, in the regular power spot there isn't USB-C, but an ugly barrel jack. Even worse, both ports are nearly right next to each other... 

It doesn't make a lot of sense. Why waste money to increase the number of power ports, and put them right next to each other, when you could save money and make a better-looking product just by leaving it out? 

If you want to be capitalists, just charge $5 extra to take out the barrel jack, and I would gladly pay.
