It's a debian buster. The only thing not from the official debian repos are : u-boot, the kernel and gl4es (as far as I can see so far).custom linux os or something like debian?
Ease it more than a little then. Hardware wise, it look very solid (unlike the not pro version). The screen is awsome : no glare, very large view angle and very clear. The device is very thin and very light tooI ordered a Pinebook pro too, it's supposed to arrive in february.. Good to read you're satisfied, it eases my mind a bit
Hows the battery time on that thing?
I am looking for an ebook reader, but those arent any cheaper so i can probbaly just buy such a laptop.

at that time only konsole and with backlighting at about 25%. Think about it as a usable maximum.Thanks
15 hours is a number i would be pleased with, provided the etimation isnt too far off.
Is energy-rate: 2,81125 W what is currently used? Appears to be ridicilous low for that big screen.
Define "full tasking", because for most definition of "full tasking" the cpu is sleeping most of the timeCan I ask for a estimate duration at full tasking?
Have you updated the touhpad firmware ? https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro#TrackpadThe touchpad movement detection is mediocre. I can move my finger in zigzags up and down or left and right of 0,5 cm and the mouse pointer won't move. This makes it feel like the mouse pointer is lagging behind a bit. But with some practice of movement prediction it's surely not unusable.
I doubt you can find an arm laptop with a faster CPU. If you do, please let me know.Although surely not the fastest there is, the laptop is spiffy enough for comfortably browsing, typing, enjoying media or doing some coding on the couch,
Yes I have just done that. It didn't make it any better.Have you updated the touhpad firmware ? https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pinebook_Pro#Trackpad
It would probably fix most your grips, because I dont have that issue. (and remember, it's a multi-touch, 2 finger scroll and so on)
Sorry, I wasn't talking ARM specifically, more as a laptop in generalI doubt you can find an arm laptop with a faster CPU. If you do, please let me know.
I had this ... until I used that upgrade scriptAlso I read that people are having issues with chromium crashing when opening the settings but I haven't experienced that either....
Chromium is using hardware acceleration, Kodi might not...I also installed Kodi and that works but has horrible screen tearing. It's weird because when I play the same video in the chromium browser, there is no screen tearing. I couldn't find any vsync or other video options in kodi to troubleshoot this...
according to the messages on the pine64 forum, running that update script should also fix your audio after suspend bug.If I had not these sound issues, it would be my go everywhere device.
