Pinebook Pro

Pinebook Pro running Debian with MATE

The Pinebook Pro is a Linux and *BSD ARM laptop from PINE64. It is built to be a compelling alternative to mid-ranged Chromebooks that people convert into Linux laptops.

The Pinebook Pro features an IPS 1080p 14″ LCD panel, a premium magnesium alloy shell, high capacity eMMC storage, a 10,000 mAh (9,600 mAh in later batches) capacity battery, and the modularity that only an open source project can deliver with the dimensions of 329mm x 220mm x 12mm (WxDxH). Key features include the Rockchip RK3399 SoC, USB-C for data, video-out and power-in (2.5 A at 5 V), privacy switches for the microphone, BT/WiFi module, camera and expandable storage via NVMe (PCIe x4) with an optional adapter.

The Pinebook Pro is equipped with 4 GB of LPDDR4 system memory, up to 128 GB of eMMC flash storage, and 128 Mbit of SPI boot flash. The I/O includes: 1 x micro SD card reader (bootable), 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB Type-C host with DP 1.2 and power-in, PCI Express x4 for an M.2 NVMe SSD drive (requires an optional adapter), and serial console UART (via the headphone jack by setting an internal switch). The keyboard and touchpad both use the USB 2.0 protocol. The LCD panel uses the eDP MiPi display protocol.
