Very excited for the Pinebook Pro, so glad they are looking to create a quality piece of kit!
The PB Pro made it onto Forbes, that should help Big Grin

Its always a pleasure to read something Jason writes - he is critical but very fair and always optimistic. I recommend reading his article on the 11.6" Pinebook.

This is great news and the laptop looks amazing. I definitely want to get my hands on this machine.

I'll make sure to take more pictures of the Pinebook Pro at FOSDEM. Regarding demand, lets see if people put their money where their mouth is. People have been asking for a  Pinebook Pro for over a year now, declaring that they will buy it 'day one'. Lets hope they do Smile

I'm absolutely committed and really happy about the specs, the design decisions and the focus on build quality.
The new Pinebook Pro just looks great! I've applied for the 11.6 Pinebook BTO will I be able to transit my queue into this?
I just read the Forbes article, and find the PBP concept interesting. Since I just joined, here is some background:

My first flirtation with Linux was with a small Acer netbook, about 10 years ago, starting with Ubuntu, then Mint.

In 2010, I got involved with Chromebooks via the initial Cr-48 pilot project, and have since become a Google "Product Expert" for Chromebooks.

I experimented with Linux via Crouton on my first paid-for Chromebook, a Samsung with a measly Atom processor, 2 Gb of RAM and 16 Gb of storage. It ran surprisingly well on such low-end equipment, but in the end I decided that running Lubuntu through Crouton didn't offer enough advantages to be worth the effort.

I'm a sucker for new tech, and at $200, the PBP sounds like a very interesting way to get back into Linux — with the understanding that Linux tweaking is inherently a time sink. The NVMe slot and USB Type-C port are especially attractive.

I plan to watch traffic here for a while before making a decision, but will advance orders be possible for the PBP, and if so, how and where?
Your products look great ! Will international keyboard layouts be available ? We French speaking people love our éùçàè !
Hi All,

Really glad to see so many people join in and be positive about the announced products. Our response-time over the next 4 days will be slow - everyone is either en-route to FOSDEM or packing for the trip. This will affect newcomers in particular, as moderation-time of new posts (new members need must have their first 3 posts moderated) will be slow; sorry in advance ... we'll get to the posts asap.

I promise to respond to as many questions as possible once we're back. In the meantime, stay tuned for the blog which will follow the announcements Wink

Any ideas about the battery life of the Pinebook Pro? 10000mAh battery doesn't sound very big...
