I love how Linus made sure to protect his $220k investment in the company and showed the laptop repair/replace process in the best light possible, by... Not reading the instruction manuals and fumbling through the entire thing without even using a parts tray, thus making the entire process look a lot more painful than it actually probably is? 😂😂😂

@Thiccboi Chungo I think this is to show that even if you're clumsy (like me) or don't want to read the instructions you can still assemble one of the laptops. Compared to say, Apple with their lack of upgradability/rediculous repair processes and parts supply. Plus, Linus' appeal as a youtuber is that hes quite clumsy and goofy- wouldn't be as entertaining if he just assembled it imo haha

Wait, you can use the beast with the Framework laptop? Why was that quickly glazed over, that is a very important point on getting one of these! This PC doesn't have a GPU available on the Framework website. Being able to add a feature to an already incredible laptop needs to be explored further!

@GuiGuiTo for now,i think because igpu have become a better grapic card than before (example intel have iris, amd have zen 2 and zen 3). Other benefits: long battery time, weightless, more easy to build.

As soon as I find out that Framework laptop plays nice with MX Linux, I will have one. Sure wish I could think of someone who would actually try MX Linux OS on a Framework laptop and let me know. I been a distro hopper for a decade until I found MX Linux and have never look at another ever again. Good video, thanks.

Why not order the laptop without a hard drive, grab an inexpensive M.2 disk, install that a then install your OS? If that fails then sell the laptop along with the M.2 drive and recoup the investment.

Bruh, you bein' paid to shill for mx or something? It's just a debian-based distro, not some weird exotic creature. The framework will work with it just the same as any other distro, possibly plus some configuring based on which features you care about and what default stuff the distro comes with.

Framework could even implement a future discount if you sold your old boards or components back to them, and they could sell those at a discount for more ease of access and less waste. People wouldn't have to mess with ebay or craigslist, it would be great for a more rural market where you maybe couldn't unload your older parts easily.

@Zoetje I love RPis they're great for tinkering but you can't use em for routers and you can't really use em for anything else, just the one project. What I'm talking about is using a framework mainboard as a quiet affordable mini PC with 3-4 things running on it that need more computational power or require x86(like routers). Most Mini PCs are either very expensive or lacking IO or very underpowered. This is a nice middle ground from a sustainable company. If you have something that'll run on a RPi and you can get your hands on one definitely go with that even if you end up using 3 or 4 it'll still be cheaper than doing this, if you have space use on old pc but for me neither is true

@Markos Verdhi even if you don't have it lying around, the 11th gen boards are discounted, if you want something small, power efficient, and quiet it's hard to beat. I manage the IT for my whole family and i'd love nothing more than a server rack in every home but its just not practical. If you want to take advantage of the extra cpu power, use VMs turn it into a PFSense or OPNsense router and a nas all in one, you could add an ARC a320 in a thunderbolt dock and turn it into a media server. Maybe add another mainboard to use for your firewall. You could also host game servers using. You can build a pretty amazing home server setup with these things over time and they don't have to be loud bulky or draw a lot of power (the last is definitely a big deal to us europeans)

@Geckedes but he means removed in advance. Right now you can select parts you want but you have to either buy individual parts, select bundles, or an entire computer. They want a assembled computer minus a few parts. It’s more economical than buying individual and more ecological and economical than removing parts. However it is difficult for the company. Adds a lot of logistics both on the software end for making a website that can do that and for assembly lines. Also it would be hard to put a price on a partially made laptop. People would expect it to be cheaper than a full laptop and cheaper than buying individual parts which makes pricing complex. Plus you have to factor in assembly cost.

This video tripled my confidence in Framework. I love that Linus takes such a pragmatic, level-headed approach to reviewing their products honestly -- it honestly makes me *more* likely to buy them because I feel like there's zero chance of getting something I wasn't expecting. With framework, I know what I'm buying and I know the company's values are aligned with mine. Awesome company and awesome video. I hope framework sees many years of success to come.

I was so in love with the concept, that in spite of not really needing a laptop at the time, I rushed out and got one... as for not getting what I expected? Well, touch pad was junk, they replaced it, but new one was junk too, (I'm a software architect of 35+ years in the industry, so I've used a LOT of touch pads (50+), never one this bad), other issues made me put it aside and not use it for a year, I go to use it and it is bricked now and won't charge.. Or power on (is that because of the idiot thing they mentioned in the video won't boot without a battery? and if the battery is bricked.. so goes the laptop? Nice.. F- for a grade for that one) Hard to express my level of disappointment in the product I got.. I've since gone out and bought both a Mac Studio (for $6,800), and a Macbook Pro M1, and love both of them... Yeah, NOT a Mac Fan, but these products really DO blow me away... Fully loaded, at 100% CPU my Studio is running 'hot' at 56C, but it takes a LOT of work to get it that hot, that is running it fully loaded with 8 VMs 24/7 with each one using 100% of their CPU.. 35C is what my laptop runs.. (not 80-90C like the Intel stuff.. Oh, and brother worked for Intel for years.. So, I have always bought Intel and I do all my work on Windows..) I can't service the M1 laptops.. but Can't service a lot of things.. Ever try to service a modern watch? or 100's of other things? I LOVE the idea, and would like to see this company produce something that can be useable, but it will be YEARS before I trust that I get something good. (Btw: Macbook: Solid build, Framework: Floppy toy in comparison)

@James Clarke That is just not true. The difference between a full size Ethernet port and a USB port is less than a quarter inch (5.4 mm .213 inches). Size isn't an issue, since they reduce the size of the Ethernet port by making it hinged, so it can go on thin laptops, which I have in my possession on my laptop. It takes up less space than a full size Ethernet connector. It's a bit of a pain to use, but it is there on thin laptops.

@James Clarke I have 8 laptops in this room, and only 2 of them don't have either net ports. It's more the cost of the laptop than the size. You're more likely to not have an either net port at the price range below $400, which is not the bulk of the laptops out there by any stretch of the imagination. In the Framework price range almost all laptops by other makers have either net ports, it's in the 90% or higher range.

@Eric Wu Modular design is always more expensive, which is going to keep it in the area of a play thing, an expensive toy, like a Corvette or Mustang. Look at Linus in the video, who looks like my father playing with his Corvette, his a toy. You can go around and around on this not being a toy, but they have other serious problems as well, when they can't even make hinges like the laptops that came out of 2004. I am not going to argue any further on this because it is a waste of my time, and go do something more productive. It's still a toy, and they need to bring this out of a gimmick laptop only a few would want to play with.

@Leslie Savage The demand supply curve is static for a certain kind of product. It's the pricing that captures the demand. The price shifting too high on the curve doesn't make a product categorically different. Cheaper modularity result in even more tech hobbyists buying the laptop, and hence more people buying it as a toy. And of course, it would also result in regular users buying it.
Eric Wu
Eric Wu 3 aylar önce
@Leslie Savage A lack of market demand doesn't mean "toy." It's a strange word that makes a simple issue more complex: this laptop won't have enough buyers, and it won't have enough buyers because of its high price tags (expensive -> not enough buyers). People don't buy it not because it's modular but because it's too expensive. This doesn't have anything to do with it being "toy" or catering to tech hobbyists.

@Eric Wu The only people who are going to take this laptop seriously are people who will play with it, which makes it a toy. I've fixed and sold computers, including laptops, and people bring in computers to get the p--- off it after they went where they shouldn't of, which is how un-savy your general public is. Case in point, Linus is excited about this, and he is a tech nerd that plays with technology. Most people who use laptop don't. Even some gamers bring in their machines to have them upgraded and repaired. I had one rig come in that cost more than all the computers in my shop combined, and we fixed it for a gamer. This Framework would like to be something, but it is for the person who plays with his computer, not talking about a gamer. Also you said, "There's no reason that the chasis can't be bigger to accomodate different motherboards." There goes their business model with a bigger laptop to except bigger boards. It's a toy for computer nerds to play with, when a computer should be a means to an end, and not the end in and of itself.
Eric Wu

@Leslie Savage The premium with swappable parts is steep, similar as all the Alienware laptops with modular GPUs. I wouldn't say it's "overpriced" because it is the cost of that feature, which incurs costs like opening additional factory lines for the modular parts and maintaining respective inventories. It's not really a "toy" either because it's duly executed in its own design. It might be an unsuccessful product, but I don't see how it's a toy. The chasis is small because that particular product was not made for gaming. There's no reason that the chasis can't be bigger to accomodate different motherboards.

having access to schematic and 1st party replacement parts is awesome.

@BenediktI don’t think they should have to buy them back. Computer parts lose value over time and they would never be able to sell them all. It wouldn’t be profitable and would put a huge strain on them. Not to mention it is less ecological to ship parts to them opposed to buying directly. What they could do that would take minimal cost would be to setup a peer to peer platform like eBay or Facebook marketplace for selling used parts that would be easy to find parts on and without the ridiculous costs of eBay fees. However those sites take a lot of investment to setup and get bug free which is also a huge burden on a small company. They already have online forums so I think the most reasonable thing to do would be to add a dedicated part to their forum and let them community help make it.

Very very cool to see the old mobo literally turn into a mini PC. That is such a cool use that is endorsed by the company. Honestly if this were more matured I would have been able to convince my org to replace our fleet of machines with these. Being able to swap components is awesome and old hardware could get recycled. It's so great

This is a really nice concept. Love it. Especially that you are still able to use the older motherboard as a secondary mini Desktop. And the 3D printing aspect gives users the power to design their own case, if they want. So they even can level up the new life cycle of older hardware with their design wishes.

The iGPU on the Intel CPU on that motherboard is pretty poor. Struggles with anything much more than hearthstone, and there's no way to swap it out or add an AMD APU like the Steam Deck has, so you'd have to find a compact dedicated GPU that's actually worth the space and power draw.

@Kermit DA Phrogge I am not a profesional reviewer However I'd say im very happy with it. My PC is hooked to LG C1 OLED TV's but when I am on the road(truck driver) I used the framework lap top to watch netflix and I found the image quality to be really good. for the size the resolution seems fine. I have not used in super bright areas but id say that it would not do well as the brightness does not get as high as id like. The audio also does not get very loud. It also gets pretty hot if suffocate the bottom of it by laying it on your chest while in bed which was my use case. However I used it in dark areas primarily and liked using my headset for audio anyway. Those are the only issues I have with it. I have an older TUF gaming laptop that has better audio that was around the same price, though it has a GPU. But the screen is better on the laptop id say. The brightness thing might be me just being used to HDR content. Also the fact that in the future I will likely be able to upgrade the screen is a big plus.

Turn to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ died for our sins and God raised Him from the dead on the 3rd day. He loves us more than anyone. He created us and loves us. Call upon His name! Heaven and Hell are real places. We need to repent and turn to Him. “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” Acts 2:38-39 KJV “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 KJV “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36 KJV “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14-15 KJV “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?” Luke 11:9-13 KJV “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrew 9:27-28 KJV “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:35-40 KJV “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:28-31 KJV “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33 KJV “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:9-13 KJV “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:5-6 KJV “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:13-20 KJV “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” 2 Philippians 2:4-11 KJV “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:1-21 KJV “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” John 20:24-31 KJV Call upon Jesus Christ

A comment I read in another video about the framework laptop feels very fitting for this video, "we're gonna need to train the anti-consumer habits of companies out of our system." In devices such as laptops, when we usually hear that a hinge is broken we either begrudgingly send it in to a repair shop (wherever that could be) for a long stretch of time or we just bite our tongue and live with the issue. However with this machine, you yourself can change out the components in record time without fumbling too hard on the replacement. It's absurd how much companies trained us to be complicit in their greedy practices and move us to just buy the new thing whenever your current thing will die. Not this time. This company would surely help regain a new bar for excellence in terms of support, service and excellence.

@AJ Hauter which is why a laptop manufacturer will have to do their own modifications to chips to do swappable CPUs.

@InfernosReaper It wouldn't be completely impossible to use desktop CPUs in a laptop, but there are problems with that. You're probably right about it being difficult to get them to use an LGA or PGA CPU in a laptop ever again.
InfernosReaper 5 aylar önce
@AJ Hauter at some point AMD & Intel decided to not do their laptop CPUs to where they could be in a socket and swappable. Most manufacturers just build within that limitation. Thus, unless you want to try to run desktop CPUs in a laptop, you're gonna have to do some kind of addon(s) to the CPU to make it work right in a socket... or design a special socket and heatsink setup to accommodate laptop CPUs. *Maybe* if enough orders are made AMD and/or Intel would comply, but that's a huge maybe.

@InfernosReaper They don't even need to do a seperate PCB and socket for the CPU. I have a Dell Latitude from 2011 which is completely user serviceable. The CPU is an i5-2540m on socket G2, and is incredibly easy to remove. It's definitely possible to design laptop CPUs to be user-removable (LGA/PGA instead if BGA). The GPU would still be difficult.
InfernosReaper 6 aylar önce
it is my hope they'll eventually work out swappable GPUs and a CPUs. Admittedly CPUs is easy, since that is "put middleman PCB on and put a socket on the board" while GPUs are a bit more difficult because that will require some kind of daughter board and a good data and power link

Which... you can't just find a quick buyer for a used Framework MB with any reasonable timeframe. There are a TON of reasons why Framework laptops just don't quite work out. They're serviceable and open source which is great, but I feel like the benefits really end at the right-to-repair argument. The upgrades that you did in itself would have been half a Framework laptop in the trash if you didn't have a desire or need to repurpose the old components into a different PC. Most people probably wouldn't bother with that. Now, if there was some kind of recycling service where you could send your old Framework components FOR CREDIT INCENTIVE towards NEW modules and parts for your machine, that would be absolutely freaking amazing.

That mini-PC print-out thingy is actually the coolest thing I've ever seen for these kind of parts. Would be very easy to resell them later down the line as office PCs.

oh my oh my oh my i want this company to go to the moon so bad... actually i want this whole design concept to be mainstream. the idea that hardware is kept, and tweaked over time just makes it more emotionally valuable.

I would recommend to framework company to buy *replaced parts* (e.g. back panel) of the users laptop for half or quarter of the price so they can recycle it (much more environmental friendly).

Watching this made me realize how important on-board assembly diagnostics are for a user-serviceable device. Being able to quickly identify missing screws/components would go a long way towards ensuring that all users (regardless of their organizational skills) can complete repairs/replacements.

man, i really wish they gave amd options when i was shopping for a laptop. i’d love for them to cater more to the gaming/enthusiast crowd in the near future

I really hope they'll make a future version with a dedicated GPU that is gaming capable. Upgrading your GPU down the line is far more interesting to me than upgrading your CPU.

@Waralo1 Great so what connection standard is this 'socket board' going to be? How is the thing being cooled in a notebook? What happens when inevitably after 1-3 generations the graphics chip needs to change size to match a new architected and your 'socket chip' design is now defunct........ It's a horribly complex thing that your simplifying to idiot levels. It's been done plenty of times in the past...there is a reason why it's not done anymore....why it's not happening anytime soon...why no company is going to invest the massive amount of money needed to make it happen, only for all of it to go out the window after 1-3 generations.... Went so well with the Area 51... And because of the aforementioned problem's the old MXM standard never made it past 1-2 'upgrades' before the standards had to be updated and there was no 'update' that could be made anymore...

@tv321123 I mean one should be able to just take the chips and put it on a socket board instead of a mainboard.

@Matthew Trebs I would be OK with a 15 inch version with better thermal design. 15" makes more sense with gaming anyway.
Matthew Trebs

I think thats a tall order on a 13 inch thin and light. Your battery and thermals would be awful. An egpu solves both these problems. Then your laptop stays portablr for small on the go tasks but get full performance for big jobs when youre plugged in anyway. And framework has a battery disconnect mode

@walkin mn That's a good point. Maybe one day they'll have the power and money to create their own mobile GPUs based on nvidia or amd chips. That would be the dream to switch your laptop GPU, like you switch your desktop GPU.

Curious, based on this video, can we just buy the framework motherboard with the chip and just build a super slim desktop with it? Just curious about it. Had always tried to repurpose old laptops, but some company's has hardware compatibility issues that makes upgrading a nightmare.

I can't even count the amount of times that I've handled a laptop and said "I'd buy this if only they didn't fuck up this one feature" being able to retroactively swap simple parts (and even in the future had a catalogue of parts for one component) Really could feasibly make this the last laptop you need to buy.

@John DoDo Doe is there even an industry standard for laptop parts?
John DoDo Doe
John DoDo Doe 6 aylar önce
@Adzetko They really need to make more parts industry standard, such that most screens of particular size will fit, just like RAM and SSD. At the other end of the spectrum, their module bays need an extra connector providing stuff like PCIe lanes and non-USB power. This would allow the aftermarket to create modules with non-USB chips, such as 10Gb Ethernet and 8Gb SAS.
Adzetko 6 aylar önce
@Allan Shpeley I think the biggest problem you mentioned is screen size options, it is a problem hardly solvable without changing the whole chassis, which would mean splitting your production in two and outputting more waste. But for the refresh rate/glare issues, well I'm pretty confident saying it's just a matter of time before they'll release a matte 120 Hz panel. Maybe some out of the shelf screens like these already exist compatible with the Framework though?

Super impressed with this. I am a mac user but have been very interested in the Framework laptop. Now to see that I can upgrade just the motherboard and make it a PC, I JUST might have to finally make the switch, (but keep my Macbook Pro for my design work). SO TEMPTING.

These framework laptops seem to be a great idea. Now, they're a little on the expensive side, they don't have AMD CPUs and they "don't accept pre-orders in my country". So, I guess I'm gonna wait a little bit?

absolutely love the concept behind this company! Hope to see an EGPU module that fits the modular system. My thought is that you could make it take up all the slots on a side to give more bandwidth than the average EGPU then have it stick out a few inches past the laptop to give you the real-estate for a good, maybe even desktop grade card, admittedly this would require one heck of a cooling solution...

The repurpose of the old motherboard to a mini pc instantly made me happy as hell. This with a nice iGPU (meaning Ryzen 6000 or Ryzen 7000 notebook APUs) would really shine so bright. Amazing!

I look forward to buying a framework as soon as an alternate touchpad module with physical buttons exists (although I'd like a chassis option supporting six ports and a larger battery)

I like the concept of modular and the right to repair. This will reduce the cost and other unnecessary things. With further innovation it may be a much more practical and efficient system. I agree with this product.
