2 years later, here are the things I personally use to help me get work done!
I own a Starbook Mk V. I
wanted the most seamless experience possible with the OS of my
choice: elementary OS and wow, it delivers! It's fast,
smooth, gets regular firmware updates over fwupd and
support is great (in terms of drivers, touchpad support and customer support).
Despite how slim it is, battery life is great. I average around 6-8 hours but
on other operating systems like Pop!_OS 21.10,
I have gotten closer to the advertised maximum of 11 hours (around 8-10 hours).
