#PinebookPro preorders are LIVE! This time around, pick your poison: ANSI or ISO keyboard!
@Azt3c There was limited option in ANSI keyboards to put in the PBP. This is the one that turned out to have the best typing feel while being close to "true" ANSI.
Here's an example of making the option key on the pinetab prototype keyboard the meta key:
@PINE64 Is there any chance in the future a laptop could be made with bigger amounts of storage? I don't mind it being a low powered device, but I want normal amounts of storage (~1TB?).
That's what the NVMe adapter is for ;)
@PINE64 I was told that adapter might not have enough power to power it though? Or maybe I'm confusing it with the PineTab?
@bart Some SSDs might pull too much power, but lower power ones should work.
@PINE64 Is there an indication somewhere on what is the max power draw the laptop can handle?
@bart The voltage regulator responsible for that power rail can do about 8.25W -- about 6-7 of which is available for use by the NVMe device.
@martijnbraam I rather stay away from SD cards for permanent storage though, way more unreliable
@PINE64 I just ordered mine! I'm very excited.
I was forced to switch from Linux to Mac many years ago for practical usability reasons, but dedicated open hardware + software manufacturers like you are giving me hope.
