You know what's stopping me getting a @PINE64 ? This:

"Small numbers (1-3) of stuck or dead pixels are a characteristic of LCD screens. While very rare, these are normal and should not be considered a defect."

Stuck or dead pixels are NOT a characteristic of LCD screens. It's 2021 for fuck's sake.

@zigpress @PINE64 I've ordered a fair few products from Pine64 and never had an issue with stuck pixels, I think this is just Pine64 covering themselves on the off chance something happens

@LinuxLounge @PINE64 It's an own goal though - the very act of publicly covering themselves makes me worry that they're happy to ship defective screens and I'll be the one who gets one. No other laptop maker does this.
