    Man, I really wish I hadn’t just bought a new dell laptop…. this thing looks awesome. It almost seems too good to be true.

      By the time it ships and the bugs are worked out, it’ll be time for a new machine. So, just wait. That’s my plan.

        it’s just a Clevo/Sager rebrand like every single one of these Linux-preloaded laptops. They’re a lot less Linux friendly than you think.

          That seems to go against what the whole fundraising campaign is about, are you sure it’s just rebranded hardware? How would they add hardware kill switches to a laptop they’re just rebranding?

          Purism will design and manufacture hardware that only uses free/libre software for the kernel, OS, and all software.

          Purism will source and manufacture the highest quality hardware.

        Wow, that would be really great to have an open source laptop with hardware switches for camera, mic, wifi, bluetooth and usb!

        For me personally a trackpoint, with 3 physical buttons (like in the older thinkpads) is a must-have. Unfortunately the design doesn’t include it. I will send an email and ask them.
