Other than a small sticker on the bottom there is no visible branding on the @PINE64 PineBook Pro. All the stickers I add now will be for purely aesthetic reasons.

Up and running!
Had to set the PineBook time/date manually as it thought it was last summer and I'm glad I noticed it was set to a UK rather than US keyboard before I typed too many passwords, but it seems to be functional at the moment.
Will be taking it home to run updates outside of my employer's firewall.
@RussSharek So far, I like it. No "buyer's remorse" as of yet, to be certain.
I'm going to try to use it for work as much as I can this week to get a better feel for the performance. I'm expecting it to be similar to the Raspberry Pi 4s I have in my classroom.
I'll look forward to seeing how it fares as a daily driver.
What distro are you running on it for your test?
@RussSharek I've never played with MATE before so it's hard to tell. Only recently figured out the default is 32 bit Debian though, so I might soon be installing something different anyway.
