Probably buy one, pity it’s not fair trade :cry:

I’ve always been interested in a non-Android/iOS tablet. I’ve long waited for a decent ChromeOS tablet to drop, but maybe this will do just as well.

Sounds great at first.
But an IPS Panel is a bit of a disappointment. Backlight panels are just old fashioned imo.
