We're happy to announce that the is back in stock at our webstore! This batch will come with @ManjaroARM @kde Edition preinstalled -- this brings the mainline Linux kernel to the Pinebook Pro as default. Expected delivery worldwide in May.

If the website fails to load, please don't F5 our server out of existence! Wait a bit and try again -- this is a large batch, there will be units available for quite some time

@PINE64 I have ordered mine! Can't wait to have it and tinker the hell out of it :D

@PINE64 @ManjaroARM @kde I'm really considering getting one of these since I don't use my laptop much and usually when I do it's either basic needs or just simple typing (nanowrimo usually). Trying to determine whether this would be a good move from my 2011-made AMD budget Acer that weighs a lot and has questionable remaining battery, or whether it's going to be just as bad in a different way.
@PINE64 @ManjaroARM @kde awesome, I'm still loving my old thinkpad with 3 buttons touchpad, tho

@PINE64 @ManjaroARM @kde Is this more powerful than the PineTab will be? I would like a Linux tablet to go in my purse for daily driver. I think a babby computer would not fit and be rather heavy.

@Shufei @ManjaroARM @kde

It is significantly faster than the PineTab. The Rockchip RK3399 in the PBP is roughly 2x as fast as the Allwinner A64 in the PineTab (and original Pinebook). The graphics performance difference is even bigger than that.

@PINE64 @Shufei @ManjaroARM @kde In my tests the cpu performance is almost 3x better on the rk3399

@PINE64 @kde Thinking about getting one to use as a "work computer" so I don't have to use the Windows-ridden laptops we have at work.

@PINE64 will there be an option to purchase pinebook pro mainboards separately at some point?

my pinebook pro stopped outputting power to all usb devices (keyboard included) and i would like to replace just that part if possible since that's the only issue (which unfortunately renders the device unusable)

@SpankyWorks We do plan to have spare parts available in the future.
