|My original retina MacBook Pro is showing its age and I'm jealous of my wife's 12" MacBook, particularly by weight. But I also really like free and open source — could I really just turn around and buy another MacBook?|
System76's Galaga Pro looks about right, but I hear tell of 3.5 hour battery life and fan issues. Any other recommendations for a lightweight laptop with excellent battery life for mostly alacritty/tmux/vim workflows, Go/Terraform/Python/OpenStack development, and DevOpsy/Cloud Engineering kind of sand boxing?
