so it would just be a matter of making a top-level hardware overview
advice particle, consolidating access to the existing articles, and then
updating and expanding on those in place

FWIW, id say that libreboot constraint is over-shooting the "sweet-spot"
somewhat - the set of machines that can boot libreboot is pitifully
small - it would be more helpful to broaden the scope to all portable
computers that can run parabola-out-of-the-box, perhaps with a special
section for those that can also boot free boot-ware; but not to pretend
that this is not already a catalog of legacy - looking forward, it
would be best to point out that, as the new culture of libre-design
hardware gains in popularity, such as those surrounding ARM, RISC-V,
and POWER9, that will tend toward more libre-design peripherals being
invented - that is most likely where the brightest outlook on the
future of mobile libre computing is to be found
