Usually when you introduce someone to Librem hardware they are like
What? x amount of $ for an old gen intel CPU? I can get this laptop 3 times cheaper from the xyz store.
This is happening because when they look at a page like this one https://shop.puri.sm/shop/librem-13/ all they see is tech specs, nothing else, so they think they are paying only for that.
So I suggest to remind them about all the other perks they get when buying a Librem laptop such as Coreboot, disabled Intel ME etc…
Please add a warning on Pureos.net that PureOS is not suitable for all computers/hardware because not all computers are respecting the user’s freedom equally i.e. many hardware parts need certain blobs in order to run smoothly.
I know a warning on that beautiful page wouldn’t look good, but a disappointed user who’s angry that his computer with PureOS doesn’t work as well as when he had it with Ubuntu - is much worse!
This is especially important for laptop users with wifi cards for which FOSS drivers don’t exist. So imagine such a person installing PureOS, no wifi, perhaps no ethernet what should he do?
Thank you Purism for everything you do, I love and support it!
