Rather odd that they compare this new computer with the pinebook pro

Müller also tells me they’re prepping what he describes as a “Dell XPS 13 killer.”

“It’s 10th-generation Intel based, we will have it in 14-inch with a 180-degree lid, so you can lay it flat on your desk if you like,” he says. He also expects it to support up to 32GB of RAM, two separate NVMe drives, and weigh about 1.2kg (the same weight as the PineBook Pro).

Hopefully their only compairing weights,

The specs as shown on the page don't match the XPS series (other than entry level), mine is a XPS 15, a couple of years old now but still does what i use it for (animation/graphics), and has a 2k touch/cad screen to start with (I believe 4k sceens are now available), and 16GB of ram is more than enough as long as you have video-ram separately controlled by the video processor (you don't need the overhead of your main processors having to do both functions). Two separate NVMe drives, just means interleaving or extra space (and you can get adapters to replace a notebook hard drive for that nowadays) and sata3 is plenty fast enough if it's only being used for storage (and not video also), and the Klingon keyboard just sounds like a marketing gymic.

Using manjaro linux kernel 5.5.0-3.1 on Pinebook pro allows a deep sleep to save battery

https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?pid=60384#pid60384
Quote:
Finally, I could get it running with the following steps:
adding "mem_sleep_default=deep" to the kernel command line (in /boot/boot.txt and then running mkscr); can be checked with:
Code:
[root@pinebookpro ~]# cat /sys/power/mem_sleep
s2idle [deep]
changing the systemd-sleep settings in /etc/systemd/sleep.conf from "SuspendState=freeze" to "SuspendState=mem" (active after reboot or "systemctl daemon-reload")
Now, my system is using S3 sleep ("PM: suspend entry (deep)" in dmesg).

Pine people are still developing pinetab


Quote:
If we can resume PineTab manufacturing next month alongside the PinePhone and Pinebook Pro, then pre-orders may go live in March.
The good news is that we have now internally narrowed down OS choice for this early batch to two OSes. We’re in talks with the projects in question to determine which of the two will be the most viable for the first PineTab batch. I expect that we should be announcing what we agreed on next month, so if you’re interested in the PineTab now is probably the right time to subscribe to this blog. At any rate, there are now two good options for us to choose from with sufficient software maturity that early adopters have something to start with when they receive their unit.
