Just discovered this:


Since Apple may soon block independent repairs and/or obsolete my MacBook Air I know where my next laptop is going to come from... πŸ€“

I think their devices are quite pricey. How about getting a Lenovo and put Debian on it yourself? Usually gets you better specs. It's not like Ubuntu-Shop makes use of coreboot or libreboot, so their added value is tails as live boot? You can do that ;)

I don't see Lenovo as much cheaper than either ubuntushop or tuxedo, unless you have a cheap site somewhere.

I am big fan of the MacBook Air form factor and portability, and AFAIK, Lenovo does not have something as thin as that, while these are quite close (and offer customization).

Finally, I don't touch Debian at all. Slackware if it's Linux, OpenBSD otherwise... πŸ˜‰


That's good, lenovo's are pretty cheap here in stores. I'm still shopping around for my MacBook Pro replacement. Lenovo's hardware is usually quite good supported on bsd's.

Can't go with open or FreeBSD yet though due to sublime text 3 and vscode/atom not running on it yet. Electron recently got workable though, so hopes are up ;)
