    Great to see a sleek laptop with open-source firmware on both host* and EC side, reduced/disabled ME, and designed to run Linux.

    *as open as it can get on x86 these days, anyway

    Why does it have a MicroSD Card reader, a HDMI port, a headphone/microphone combo and a separate AC connector? There are adapters for all of this and one could go down the road like Apple with their MacBook with a single USB-C port. Obviously, many customers value the variety of ports one can access without buying, carrying around and plugging in adapters.

    Two memory sticks with different sizes? Is this single channel only??
    AMD and Intel CPUs have supported mixed dual-channel mode for quite some time.

    Intel hardware can dualchannel with different sized sticks since a long while, with "flex memory" feature http://www.laptopmemoryupgrades.co.u...ory-technology

    But apart from that, it's probably just to save some bucks, RAM is expensive

    Sounds sweet, but I would have to upgrade. Once you've tried 16gb of memory on a laptop you'll never want to downsize.
