Isn't the Qualcomm 845 also the SoC in some of the new WARM laptops?

I asked one person that had an older one (ASUS NovaGo - Qualcomm 835),
and apparently you can actually disable secure boot on that thing and
boot from USB.

In other words, it might _actually_ act like a normal laptop.

I'd love to have something that is actually a real honest-to-goodness
ARM laptop finally. Are we getting at all close to that?
