Features:

The Pinebook is a $99 laptop, based on the popular Pine64 ARM board. It sports a quad core ARM CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC, Wifi and Bluetooth and either a 14" TN screen or an 11" IPS screen.

The Manjaro ARM images are marking Manjaro ARM’s first venture into ARM based laptops and is heavily based on the Arch Linux builds from user anarsoul on Github.

How to install:

Download the image/zip file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.

After that, install Etcher and burn it to an SD card (8 GB or larger recommended).

Put the SD card into the Pinebooks SD card slot and boot it up. The Pinebook should recognize the SD card as a bootable device and boot from it.

The Pinebook will reboot once before it gets to a login screen. This is because the filesystem gets resized to fit the SD card.

On first boot, the wifi card gets activated after a couple of minutes, even though the tray icon (on plasma) does not change.

The zip is broken at the moment.

I strongly suggest trying out the LXQT image - its a really good preview (minor issues with sound, etc.,)

I will test it when it's final, NEON works well, since only in the browser does not have acceleration.

I have used the preview2 release now the whole afternoon (Europe) with battery and have not had one drop of the wifi that I would have noticed.
Works super

Small niggles:
- locale not completely set, trizen (perl) complains about that but works
- the keyboard layout is not adjusted to the somewhat unusual Pinebook layout yet but for the MENU key the tips in the Wiki-FAQ work

I am quite happy with this already
