General Discussion / Re: GNU/Linux Intel notebook

I like the case very much, could be it is too slim... I have already contacted them and they answered me, so we will see what happen. :D

I found this laptop on Crowdsupply : https://www.crowdsupply.com/purism/librem-laptop

It is the intel version of what we may achieve.
The case is very smart but it is very mac-like as well. I like it anyway. I still think that the design of the case is always very important. A good looking computer will attract more people. Especially laptops as you may use them in public places.

Notebook chassis / Re:without motherboard might be tricky
« on: January 04, 2015, 12:18:50 PM »
We are already in contact with an ODM that could provide us only one classic 15,6 notebooks model without the mobo, but only for a short limited time, so more options are welcome, people could help us searching others ODM. Your suggestion is welcome, we have already though at that solution in case we will have no others options...

It may make sense to choose a whitebook/barebones style ODM system in a similar fashion as some small studio resellers do, buying from as close to ODM as possible. Then one normally customizes with a particular CPU, OS, memory, HD etc. and you could skip some of those things, but have to swap out the motherboard. Perhaps then resell the motherboard as a repair part on Ebay or someplace suitable for such things.
