I have finally a good opportunity to by a librem, my new company will allow me to have a laptop of my choice. I’d be happy to show everyone a purism laptop because purism isn’t known enough in my opinion.
I check the website several times a week and see a lot about the librem 5 but no love for the laptop. Is there anything plan for them? I have 2 points that worries me about the purism’s laptops :
CPU : the Intel 6500U (skylake) seems very capable but the fact that it is 3 years-old now bothers me a little bit, is there any plan to have newer one? I would be super excited with an AMD option too.
ethernet port : I have read about that on the forum but I have no idea what are the plans/opinions of purism. I have always turned of wifi as much as possible at home (also for some reason wifi are usually bad, even in office), so ethernet is a big thing to me. I am not sure of the cost (money, space, etc) of such a feature for a laptop but isn’t having a proper LAN controller faster and better than USB (will increase CPU usage right?)?
I hope my questions aren’t too silly. I would love to read news from the website from time to time about the sales of the laptop series and the plans for them.
