Pinebook 14-inch review

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

An Ultrabook with an ultra-low price ($99, which equates to around £75, so should set you back approximately £100 with shipping from the US), the Pinebook is the long-awaited laptop from Pine64. Like the Raspberry Pi rival Pine A64, the Pinebook is an ARM-based computer, and shares the same 64-bit CPU.

Significantly, however, the Pinebook is currently the only ARM laptop on the market. Lightweight and narrow in a similar fashion to the MacBook Air, the Pinebook comes pre-installed with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, complete with the MATE desktop environment. Other compatible operating systems include Debian Jessie, (the now defunct) Remix OS 2.0 and Android Nougat. If you prefer, your own choice of OS can be compiled from source.
