    The CPUs require non-free software to boot and function. That’s very hard to get around but it would be interesting if at some point they built a device based on ARM with a chip set that is free.

    On top of that they use Intel WiFi which needs non-free software to work. Ubuntu, pop os and Fedora all ship proprietary software in the kernel to make it work. Admittedly the number of free WiFi cards are limited so maybe it was about tradeoffs.
