So I want to start off by saying, no, this isn't a I hate the laptop or I hate Cloudready post. I've been a IOXO M133-N user for a while since the original listing on eBay. (I know some people got theirs from the official website or whatever, but not the point) I love this laptop and it's hard for me to stop using it. Now, specs, if you check the specs, you'll see that it's like every other old chromebook with terrible specs that run great. I still feel like this laptop performs great. And that's all due to the 32GB Flash storage in here.
It's "basically a MicroSD card but you can't upgrade or replace it" -eBay seller fianco
I have, like my posts said, flashed multiple OSes on this laptop, and that could be the cause of it losing storage, but I don't mind. I use this laptop with two accounts and Linux FireFox on both.
Now for what the title is about. A good device that no longer exists, this laptop has been "sold out" on the IOXO website as well as the eBay listing. Messaging the seller is like trying to get blackberry to build another phone. It doesn't work anymore. Phone support on the IOXO website never worked and still doesn't. Luckily, I was able to get my hands on a few replacement batteries by the eBay seller before they shutdown all communication with me. I love this laptop and really can't fault it for anything else other than the fact that you can't use it on other OSes other than Cloudready and Windows, and the fact that the laptop sometimes only charges to 60 or 70% then stops charging. (Which is most of the time, but I can survive with the charger nearby) I've tried Flex, but according to a Reddit thread, the "drivers" are built into the kernel of Cloudready and it's hard to get them into Linux, and when done, it's not really worth the time and effort spent. I bought a few of theses machines and gave them to family members with the Cloudready OS on it. They all used it as if there was nothing wrong and it was a regular laptop (ignoring the fact that they had to login with their email password instead of one they wanted to set manually).
That's all. I suck at formatting and stuff so srry for making y'all read it.
