Possible future Rockchip based Pinebook?

And this is exactly the problem with a RockPro64 based Pinebook.

I would have no problem paying $200 or even $250 for A RK3399-based Pinebook....
Thinking about it like this, performance of the RockPro64 is already nearing that of several low-end to lower-mid-range laptops of today that cost $250.
If one could get a RK3399 Pinebook with 4GB of RAM, 128GB eMMC, and then add in a WiFi+Bluetooth, 14.1" screen, and give it 3x USB Type-A ports and 1x USB Type-C port, a full-size SD slot, HDMI port, and a 720p webcam. That gives you a very nice Chromebook competitor(similar hardware and price-point, but completely unlocked and able to run many Linux distro's out of the box, ofc it could probably also run a Chromium OS build if there was one with the right drivers(ArnoldTheBat's CARM64 builds would be a good start) ).

And of course, such a laptop could even run W10 on ARM(someone did manage to get it working on an RPi 3, but with USB issues)
