    When Framework told me they were making a completely repairable laptop I assumed it would be a flimsy chonker... I've never been so happy to be wrong.

Having done a lot of IT work for schools/colleges (as a tech, both in house IT and working for a managed service provider) and seeing the huge cost differential between being able to self-repair a Lenovo laptop in our shop, vs how hard it is to replace a laptop HDD in a Dell... This thing has me salivating. Targeting the high end niche is a good idea to get started. I hope they are able to make ruggedized versions down the line. I can see why you invested.

We all want this company to break the stereotypes of "planned obsolescence" and money grabbing big tech that actually work _against_ their consumers. And the best way to do this is buy them, recommend them, and if possible, invest in them! LG came out with G5 with modular design but it failed..let's make this work, people!

I really want this company to succeed. In this day and age, we absolutely NEED upgradeable hardware! Thinkpads used to be the champions of durable and upgradeable laptops, but they've sold out and are involved in the same anti-consumer practices as other brands. I see no reason to support thinkpads any longer if they're just as bad as everyone else. It's time we give Lenovo a run for their money for abandoning the very thing that made thinkpads popular in the first place! And I would also like to add that if Framework fails, other tech companies will point their fingers at them and say "told you so!", so I think it is CRUCIAL to support their cause!

I'll laugh in 3 years when this product will either be discontinued or modularity will be irrelevant if new versions will use different connection types. Not to mention you will buy replacements only from them which could translate into jacked up prices.

I am sold, I always thought about fabricating this type of thing for myself. I like that the power charge port can be replaced, I always break those. I also like that it can have it only on wall power. I just hope they are successful enough so we have replaceable and upgrade-able parts for a long time. I wish it had 6 ports slots or a dual usb port option (for wired mouse, RF keyboard, usb printer, HDMI, usb memory stick, usb type C of course, usb C backup drive). I do not like dongles. And the microphone off switch and block camera slider so many goodies. I am probably going to get one and install linux mint on it. Though I did not hear how the sound is on it. hmmm what about 4 tiny bass modules for more boom boom with the sound?

I used a Purism Librem laptop for a bit more than a year, and let me tell you that, even though their laptop is made from open source components etc, it's nowhere as upgradable as this one. I had to mill the keyboard's plastic stumps behind the motherboard just to replace the damn thing, and Purism wouldn't even sell me a new keyboard!!
