What do you want to know? It's been announced, the specs are out, the
firmware code is out in the open (it ships with u-boot), and we even have
some code upstream for it in coreboot that could be polished up. There's
the usual masked ROM in addition to the 8KB BL0 blob, but everything else
is open including the EC firmware.

It's a nice laptop that is probably already a good candidate for RYF. I'll
leave subjective analysis as an exercise for the reader.
