PINE64 unveiled the Pinebook Linux laptop back in November, and now this cheap machine is ready to ship. PINE64 is known for the Pine A64 single-board computer, and the Pinebook uses the same Allwinner A64 processor as its $15 USD sibling.
Although the Pinebook comes in two sizes, their specs are similar, including the resolution of the TN panel - 1,366X768 pixels. The other highlights include the Allwinner A64 processor with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC internal storage and microSD support, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 2XUSB 2.0 connectivity, as well as a mini HDMI port. The Pinebook's power comes from a 10,000 mAh battery, and the dimensions are 11.8X7.9X0.5 inches or 13X8.7X0.5 inches. The smaller Pinebook weighs 2.3 pounds, while the 14-inch one has 2.8 pounds.
To buy a Pinebook, those interested should enter the desired screen size and their email address so the sales team can contact them before actually placing the order. Shipping to the US costs $29 USD and the price of the Pinebook starts at $89 USD and $99 USD, depending on the screen size. Sadly, returns are not accepted and there is only a 30-day warranty.
