I have it for maybe half a year.
I like it very much and I use it daily.
With 6 cores (2 big + 4 little) and 4 GB of RAM it is enough for my day to
day use. (1 million Firefox tabs and 2-3 terminals with SSH to Linux
Servers)
There are many supported OSes.
I use the default Manjaro (??), and it has some issues with the WiFi
sometimes it looses connection, and you have to reconnect.
I tried the Chromebook image, and it did not have that issue there, but I
did not like that image. (you can boot from SD card to try out new images
without flashing the eMMC)
Apart from the WiFi issue I have no issues.
It is no powerhouse with but it is enough for 99% of what I do.
And it is much lighter and the battery life is much longer than my regular
laptop.
