@dcid They don't have some kind of key override?
@dallin Fun about sums it up. I don't see it really being all that useful, as it is performance and functionality wise pretty limited. Great form factor. If it had some beef under the hood this would be VERY compelling.
@dallin They really don't and it has been my lament for a long time. I wish I could have afforded them as a kid in the early 90s. The fold out butterfly keyboard on the 701C was something I drooled over as a kid.
@dallin Certianly a good idea. The marketing machine will tell you otherwise, but I have a 9 year thinkpad x220t and a 2013 x230 that are used every day and still going strong. I don't see any end in sight either. One other advantage to your approach is the huge cost savings.
@lunduke from your suggestions I would go with trying to change the decision from within. If that was not possible, then I'd probably find new employment.
@purism Based on the analogies used here, where does AOSP de-googled and using F-droid fit in?
@elementary Thanks for spotlighting a company that deserves the attention. This is yet another example that you can do things that are being done in the industry today, but in an ethical way in which everyone benefits.
@fdroidorg 3 crucial apps for me, thanks for the notice.
@dallin They are making a new one called the Alpha something. Guess I'll hold off on considering it now.
@dallin true. It is just that if I have to bring a mouse then I could just use the Onemix 3pt. If they implemented a mouse driver that would you use the touch screen similar to how you use it through vnc on Android it would be a non-starter. Guess I could write something like that. We'll see. Not sure $800 is what I need to spending on something like this at the moment.
