But on the other hand all their laptops have #intel cpu. Sure, it comes with ME disabled, but still, I want to vote with my wallet for something else.
One option is to wait for something with #AMD Ryzen cpu. But purism has no official plans of creating a laptop with it right now, so it's hard to tell how long would I need to wait.
The other option is to get an ARM laptop. There are not many options there and all have some drawbacks: #Chromebook are very restricted and closed platforms (correct me if I'm wrong). #Pinebook has Allwinner cpu, only 2GB of ram and Mali gpu, which has no open drivers. The same goes with #TERES. #Novena would be perfect if was available as a ready to use device, not Build It From Scratch, where you need to buy your own LCD panel and stuff.
So, what are your opinions?
So I got myself Librem 15, because there was a discount. Meanwhile this popped up: http://mntmn.com/reform/ by @mntmn . It fulfills all requirements and avoids problems I mentioned in earlier toots. Unfortunately, after buying Librem, I'm a little low on funds and have enough laptops. Anyway I'll keep an eye on MNT Reform, it looks great!
