    No, but it should work flawlessly

      Sure, that is also what I also believed. But I also want experience validation. There may be some incovenience I may not be noticing.

      When will you realize that laptops are obsolete. Tablets offer better portability and there is no reason to have both a laptop and a tablet.

        How are tablets more portable, when you're asking about using an external keyboard? That's inherently far less portable

          The more modular your setup is, the more portable it is. Another advantage is providing better ergonomics (unless if you were to use it on the lap, there this setup gets considerably scuffed).

          Another downside instead of the lap situation is that you require some kind of connection to the tablet (which is done "automatically" on the actual laptop).

            AI isn't real. What you mean is algorithm-generated.

    Works, but you need a Proot Arch/Debian installation to do anything fancy with containers and shit. Also uses LLVM by default. Is mostly good for interpreted or higher level langs like Golang or Ruby. There're a couple of Schemes around in the repos for some reason.

    I'm also interested considering buying lenovo M10 or M11 for the same purpose as op. Considering going down to M8. Will either be good enough for basic python tinkering?

      I think so. I think it should be able to do everything that is CLI/TUI (which is what I already use the most on my linux install).

    I threw my nvim configs onto it and it works fine. I guess it could come in handy. No idea about the use case, but it would work

      cool

      yes. It works fine for the most part. The main caveats:
      - chances are your tablet has only one USB port, so unless you get some sort of adapter, you can't charge your tablet while typing (bluetooth keyboards exist but they're crap)
      - disk operations are slow, which is why Spacemacs and Doom Emacs are almost unusable, you're forced to use a more lightweight editor like neovim or helix

      I currently have anne pro 2 which is good imo and suppoorts bt, but isn't portable enough for this use case. I would probably print a pcb and build my own for this usecase.
      In the context of editors, I already use neovim on my desktop, so I should be fine.

      I've done it with a keyboard connected over USB on a long train ride. It's alright.

      nice

      Very important point to remark. VNC works fine, but anything that does native I/O can be sluggish, Emacs or Code server don't run the same as on real hardware. You could also root the device and run an X server but is still not going to be as good as a PC. CLI is they way to go here.

        I dont see myself going outside of the CLI either way, but thanks for supporting the points.

    Yes, it works as any other unix terminal emulator because it's a terminal emulator running on an unix like operating system

    Works fine for the most part.
    Done C++, C, python and rust.
    You are tied to google's NDK releases for C++ specs. haven't done enough rust to hit a wall yet. also ip neigh doesn't work so potentially some things may not work?
