Re: Is there any "easy to use" arm64 laptop

I have a PBP and mostly like it except:

1. The small physical size and 1920x1080 resolution make old-school non-GUI stuff almost impossible.

2. The touch pad has the usual buttons but they're unmarked.  And it's a black touchpad in a black case so in low lighting it takes experimenting to find the buttons.

But I did buy one and then invested in a 1 TB SSD which fits inside.

If you spend an hour on building U-Boot for on-board SPI flash then you
can use normal AArch64 ISO.

I went that way on RockPro64 (RK3399 like Pinebook Pro).
