I created a GoFundMe for helping me to buy the computer at https://www.gofundme.com/for-buying-a-new-computer-for-developing-fedilab
It's for a Librem 15 version 4 (Only if I get enough funds otherwise, any other ideas are welcomed). Thanks.
Just a suggestion, but did you take a look at used ThinkPads? They are quite reliable, mine's already 5 years old (bought it second hand after it's already been used for 2 years), and relatively cheap (I got mine for 400€, most are around 500-600€, though).
Nice! But please, generate also few crypto wallets, I think someone will donate you via Bitcoin, Monero, Ethereum etc.
@tom79 I wish I could help but I'm totally broke :(
I bought a BM1507 in december (2018), and for now I am very satisfied. The case is really well made.
I am only a bit disappointed about one thing: informations about the battery are a bit wrong, 10h is a really too high estimation, you cannot have more than 4h while using it. 10 hours, maybe when showing a fixed image or with the screen all black, but I don't buy a 1000+€ to look at a black screen. :-P
But it is clearly the only "bad point" about my Tuxedo for now.
@tom79 I think a 250gb SSD is a bit small 🙈
If your current computer is only 3 years old, is upgrading some of the hardware a possibility? I have a 10 year old desktop that still games and can develop. It's less costly to switch out parts :)
Whatever the case may be, if the Librem 15 is the only solution to the problem and we're on the thrift, I hope it's a serviceable one. Soldering and/or the properietary nature of certain systems is a reason to avoid buying them in the first place.
@trwnh Ugh! Smacked by the threads within the thread goofup again. I beg your pardon. 😬 No hard feelings?
@trevdev Of course not! No snippiness intended. :)
Checkout system76, they have quite nice hw for good price.
What about the xiaomi mi notebook pro?
Le financement s'annonce bien, chouette !
I swear, we are getting you that laptop one way or another. 😃😃
Just the mere fact that you'll be using a Linux laptop from Purism got my donation blood pumping! 😃
@poetgrant I will use a Linux OS of course :)
Just thinking why dont Go with Asus or Acer They got great spec at much cheaper price 🤔
It's a MacBook.
I must say it's a bad choice because you can not upgrade easily components. The only reason was for a better screen for my eyes.
@tom79 Done, I hope you will receive enough money to buy a librem 15. Also maybe you should consider 16gb RAM.
Thank you :)
@tom79 Thank you for fedilab, it's an incredible application that I use daily. :)
Go for 16GB RAM! At least it should be upgradable to 16.
Seems no system76 device is in stock 😱
Does it have to be a notebook? Desktop PC would be more flexible 😉
@angrytux I always take my computer when moving :)
Yes, you are not the first one telling me about RAM. Depending of funds, I will change that.
@tom79 Okay, I have just sent a donation because you are doing a great job – thank's a lot! But why was it necessary to mention the Librem 15? Now, I want one, too!
@nomura Thank you a lot for your contribution :)
Yes, Librem 15 is an amazing computer :)
@tom79 do you also have a paypal?
Sorry for the low amount, I hope it helps.
@vancha Yes, it helps :) Thank you for your donation!
