What's the point of posting this?

Edit: To be clear, there is no new news about Purism, and the company's appearance is quite a regular thing on HN: https://news.ycombinator.com/from?site=puri.sm

Also this: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18874148

It was the first time that I heard about Purism, and I found it interesting, so I thought it might be interesting to others.

Almost certainly posted because this: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18874819 is currently #1 on the front page

First time I've actually clicked through to look at their laptops properly. An absolute dealbreaker for me is the tiny shift key on the right-hand side of the keyboard. My company-supplied laptop has this and everybody I speak to hates it. After a year of using this laptop I still haven't got used to it and keep accidentally pressing the 'up arrow' key which is where the shift key is supposed to be. If you're not careful, you end up typing on the line above where you're supposed to be. I hate it.

Weird, I just realized I never use the right shift key.
