Seeing a video like this from Jeff Geerling about the MNT Reform Laptop, I am both amazed and puzzled. It’s probably a cool project to work on such an open hardware and source project as a hobby. And it’s great that there’s still the alternative to proprietary hardware. But has this any other use than just being a toy for people that have more than a thousand bucks to spend on such a thing? Especially given that it’s the opposite of powerful. Thinking about it more, the only thing that comes to mind are people who are under surveillance and need to make really sure, to stay private at all costs.
