If you feel down because your software has bugs that you haven’t gotten around to fix in forever or that you launched with a design that hasn’t been polished enough always remember that Acer shipped this

@thomasfuchs Ah yes, the Acer Robin Reliant to balance out their Ferrari range.

I spent about 15 seconds looking for what was wrong on the screen before realizing I was missing something a bit more obvious!

@thomasfuchs Does the keyboard have a setting to ignore accidental input while mousing? 🤣🤣

@thomasfuchs

I looked at that when it was new... I mean... wtf?

@carcinopithecus @thomasfuchs it WAS intentional

it also has a hinge to bring the (touch) screen up and closer to you, IIRC, so you could use keyboard+touchscreen with the large screen on a plane, where conventional laptops with large screens don’t work on planes

(also consider how bad laptop trackpads so often are - I don’t know how many laptops I’ve seen with a Unifying dongle hanging off the side, and the user always uses an external mouse with it - and having it as a secondary emergency input device shoved out of the way starts to make a bit of sense)

@thomasfuchs wh... how... Who looked at that, thought for a minute, and said "Yeah that looks good"?!?

@thomasfuchs this reminds me of the laptops in "the sims 3"... if i recall properly, they had the same layout because the game devs didn't want to do separate animations or smth...

@thomasfuchs
what the f... of a abomination is that? what is ist supposed functionality?

@thomasfuchs I mean with how the screen moves it might make sense… for people who don't wanna use the trackpad at all
