Framework Laptop (“Right to Repair” Friendly DIY)


I was curious if anyone has experience with the Framework laptop (or even better if they might have reached out to Paul for a review).

I’m quite interested in the concept of a “repairable” / “upgradable” laptop…but I wonder if it can get enough critical mass to succeed.

    In Windows Weekly last week, Leo said he has one on preorder. Paul did not say that he had preordered one. Leo said he would let everyone know how it is once he gets it.

    Very interested in this, but will need to contact the company when I get back.

    I'd be interested in getting one of these if they make a model with a touchscreen. I love the concept and it looks like a sweet device!

      Yes. I was very impressed with the ifixit tear down. And I love the idea of the four USB C swappable modules. Including that one of the options is a storage module.

    The thing I like about this laptop is not just the repairability angle of this device, but also that the motherboard can be taken out of the body and reused as a makeshift desktop / vesa mounted PC in a 3D printed case.
