I really wanna travel to ລາວ again. Well, traveling anywhere would be nice.

I just typo'd "Receieve". When in doubt, put 'e' on both sides of 'i'.

Guix, but supports nonfree Steam in the official repo.

I think if you want to go low-end to mid-range on phones, just slap an e-ink display instead. I would totally be down to buy something like that. As much as I love accurate colors, e-ink is great for reading. With a decent DAC, audio like podcasts and text are optimized and I could curmudgeonly ignore much of the push to video and TikTokification.

I'd shit talk the Pine series, but they are clearly aiming for the lowest specs that are "useable". They're cheap, but also according to reviews not performant enough to recommend for day-to-day. I'm sure their screens suck too.

The list goes on. Especially with device you're meant to look at for hours on end, you need to have a beautiful OLED with at least 100% DCI-P3 coverage. Ideally with 13-15" you have 2K hiDPI. An increase frame rate is not as important unless you're gaming as crisp text and color accurate photos/video.

Purism Librem 14: old Intel CPU (Tiger Lake barely cuts it) but not Thunderbolt 3-4, loDPI IPS shit panel,

Purism phone: RAM and HDD too small. Screen is trash. Bluetooth 4? Meh battery.

My biggest gripes and why I don't have one of these open hardware, open source devices for my phone and laptop, is the price to performance not being competitive with those selling bigger bulk (and your data with it), but it's that I don't have access to the highest-end specs. I would pay extra for the freedom, but making me compromise with a shitty non-wide-gamut IPS panel just isn't going to get me. RAM and hard drive space is cheap, but the spec is usually tiny. The battery could be larger but isn't.
