bunnie seeking feedback on lowRISC usage

Quoting bunnie’s forum post:
It’s not quite got the specs to make a decent laptop — it’s missing graphics and SATA. The effective performance of a system built around this would feel much more sluggish than a Novena, which means it’ll be tough to use on a daily basis for productivity work. It does have tagged memory and minion cores, which means it’ll be great for security and some types of I/O; but there is no integrated Ethernet controller, so application in network stacks is limited. It is also going to be the first open-to-the-RTL processor you can buy, so maybe despite the limitations some people would prefer to use it as a primary computing solution, but wondering if there aren’t other niches this can occupy.
