https://pine64.com/product/14%e2%80%b3-pinebook-pro-linux-laptop-ansi-us-keyboard/ I regret it. Manjaro is very non-standard as Linux goes, and the laptop won't run any other kind of Linux because of the CPU. I put hours of research into figuring out if I could wipe it and install some normal kind of Linux, but the answer was always no.

Linux networking is just too difficult and not worth the trouble for me.

There was some experimental Debian distro for the Pinebook when I bought it, but unstable. I think the problem is more than just the CPU.
I would strongly recommend against buying a USB online. Find someone you trust to make you one, or do it yourself, not that hard. Hopefully they didn't add any backdoors to your installation.
My beef with cheap laptops is crappy screens.
