I'm thinking about picking up a 14"... Pinebook :matrix:
(I'll probably get one next week)

Unfortunately... it only comes in white, so I'm thinking about having the shell laser cut w/ a design.
see... http://www.cutlasercut.com/upload-your-files

I might go with this image of Medusa (I will likely omit the eyes)...
Image

I will probably render the image black foreground against a charcoal grey background.

The King Baldwin mask from the Kingdom of Heaven (film) looks cool too...

Fine business David, and that all under a hundred dollars? Simply genial!
Where is a Porteus for arm? Did you locate one already? Which desktop?

Maybe it is not contaminated with Trojan horses, arm CPU s are clean..

Regards!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

So true... I will be reaching out to this project to facilitate a Porteus version.
I purchased it to develop my cluster. See... Casetronic "rack2tower" CLUSTER build...

I am posting from it now.... but I am unhappy using Ubuntu KDE/Plasma.

However... it is wonderful indeed to be free of the threat of Meltdown/Spectre.
