dell: if you're a developer, ok for now
weird small linux manufacturers: duuuuuude try a drag of this one, maaaaaaaan, it'll make you see the bits in your miiiiiiiiiind
@brion I've never felt so called out for owning a pinebook.
@happymoomoo @brion @unlofl
- Purism- Lemote ("smallish")- Pine64- ZaReason- Clevo
And about several dozen others from Shenzhen, Taipei, Chennai, and Hanoi among other hub cities
@cypnk @happymoomoo also system76
@restioson @happymoomoo Clevo is the OEM for both System75 and Tuxedo Computers. They just add their own customizations
@cypnk @happymoomoo ah ok, interesting!
@restioson @cypnk @happymoomoo the advantage of tuxedo for me is local support. But for the sake of it, how or where would i order the new ryzen 7 4800h Clevo that they use for tuxedo pulse 15?
@zladuric @restioson @happymoomoo Tuxedo orders barebones from Clevo and install the CPU, RAM etc... themselves
If Clevo does at some point do their own 4800, it will be listed here https://clevo-computer.com/en/laptops-configurator/powered-by-amd-ryzen/
@cypnk @restioson @happymoomoo ah, so that how it works. I was wondering why'd people want you get this stuff like that instead of relying on someone like tuxedo doing the hard work for you.
