"We believe the Lemur Pro is the perfect tool for those who need to work on the go, whether it's in the field collecting data or doing developer work remotely."

Clearly some gamers in their company, with the Lemur Pro page showing a little video of Black Mesa on the product page.

I miss the time of the eeePC from Asus, back in 2008 i think. Linux native, light, cheap (less than 400€), "real" computer (opposed to tablet with tactile stuff, or worst, smartphone), they were perfect for real nomad use, office, internet, 2D games or many small indie or roguelike, etc. And durable, i still boot mine from time to time when i’m on the move.

I had a eeePC 901, played Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead, X@COM, TOME4... My current eeePC is unknown (nothing written on it, i think it’s 1201 but not sure), and rarely opened, but sometimes, a couple of weeks a year, i’d say, it’s usefull.

You're not the only one who misses netbooks! I was a big fan of them, too.

Though this looks like a nice machine, it's not what I was hoping to see when I clicked in here! (Which, admittedly, was before I really took note of the size mentioned in the headline. )

This lemur looks like a great machine. I remember the age of netbooks but couldnt get myself to go smaller than a 12-inch screen.
@Tchey and @Pengling, have you seen this device? Looks like a netbook to me. https://www.crowdsupply.com/mnt/pocket-reform

I prefer x86 for this sort of thing (I was an ARM diehard at one point, but I kept hitting walls with it so I ended up returning to x86 recently), but man, that's adorable, it has a trackball (which is wonderful!), and I can see plenty of uses for it. Bookmarked - thanks very much!

That’s at least 1000$ per unit without accessory. Also, too tiny for my taste and hands...

Wow! A laptop that's actually portable, unlike these "gaming laptops" I never understood why anyone would want one. Looks nice!

That time is still here, better than ever.

Many Chromebooks can run regular Linux distros very well. My 2017 Pixelbook is still my favorite laptop of all time, runs Fedora great, is all those things you described, can be had cheap.

is it, really? I mean - this really doesn't have any proprietary firmware in it? and what about the CPU firmware though? is the Intel ME also disabled?

This seems a sci-fi to me, I would love to be surprised though...

Does anyone know?
Cheers
