Hi...

How do you mean specifically? The laptops are certainly dated, which, for me, would not be an attractive selling point. However, the fact that it's not supposed to "contain any backdoors and is not designed to share users' information without their knowledge (e.g. spyware)" I think is definitely a plus. If this is what you meant (more privacy and data protection,) then I guess it can help to an extent depending upon how it's configured and even the services and software you use. Smile

My two cents although I don't claim to be an expert in the field. Wink

Regards...
