@adam_kelly It's definitely a pleasant surprise when being advertised as 'looking like a MacBook'. πŸ˜…

As a backer of the original Kickstarter, I would not recommend pine64 platform. There is a lot of disappointment in the community and while developers have been working hard on support, it has been slow and minimal.

They missed the boat not including a backlit keyboard and glowing LED penguin logo on the backside.

'Looks like' seems to be where the similarities end though...those specs are straight out of 2008, even for a low end machine

@alexdbauer well to be fair, it's basically a board like a Raspberry Pi (not it though) with in a good laptop form. So thinking about it as a cheap Linux Macbook might not be the best way to think of it but instead as a "Pi" with a fancy case that includes a battery, screen, mouse and keyboard built in. Considering how many things you can do with those boards, having a portable version could be useful.

@alexdbauer Well it is only $89. So it fits its niche i think pretty well. There are Windows PCs out there that look like Macbooks also if someone wanted a macbook clone with ports, and with some more power than this thing has.

Where is my magical Touch Bar? Surely, any laptop without a Touch Bar in this day and age is incomplete and sub-par!

@ajayn it's no uncouth it even has a deprecated 3.5mm jack on the side. Such a lack of courage is reprehensible.
