    I fell in love with Framework after I checked out the laptop in a previous video, and now I'm an investor. So let me explain why I did it and what my commitments are to you, the viewer, regarding future LTT content.

The problem with owning one of the competitor is not that you would deliberately say something negative about other laptops but you can be biased without even realizing it. If you have your "team" in the game you can't really be objective. Or you might try too hard to over compensate and then that would influence your judgment as well. So as a tech reviewer you might be fun but you can't be objective about it anymore.

You get sponsored by a lot of company that make products similar to what you are reviewing all the time and you still give honest views. You money as always been dependent on your image and you have still been honest. I wouldn't expect that too change at all. I would recommend still doing reviews for products you love and just throwing a disclaimer in the description.

Very well said and done. I am sure you can maintain objectivity with your reviews. You have had promos where you requested the product to review and you tore them a new one or two. So I'm sure you can do this.

Now waiting for Ryzen cpu with vega graphics or dedicated Radeon gpu for it to become the most hackintoshable laptop 💻. Not the most practical given how the price would be, but just to stick it to Apple for shits and giggles. The most open hardware with the most closed off software in the planet 🌎

It is great you are getting involved with this company. I love the concept too ad would like to see it extended to other devices and platforms in due time if possible. By that i mean that I would like to see a modular phone, modular tablets, and other devices. Perhaps even ones that could utilise older PC modules to drive a tablet for instance. Good luck and I will be buying one of those laptops when it is time.

Woke up this morning to the news that Framework has launched their "Marketplace" for spare parts. This includes their USB-C charger, which is the single most underappreciated component of their laptops. If you want to throw money at the project but don't need a new laptop, go snag yourself one of their chargers!

The problem with anything modular is the holding of large amounts of technical inventory. This is the reason most manufacturers use "Just-in-Time" manufacturing. Having a large supply of out dated parts is not good for business. Also with Tablets and "2-in-1" taking away more market share from laptops there's less market space for a premium priced modular laptop. Also because laptops have a tight area to fit everything into most components are soldered onto the motherboard leaving only a select few components that can be upgraded and I Don know that those few components are worth the premium price tag.

As cool as the Framework laptop sounds, I'm not convinced it will take-off on any large scale. I feel the average consumer tends towards disposable tech, and the ones who would prefer to build and maintain their own computers, will do so in the more traditional sense. LTT wouldn't be around if everyone had a modular laptop. It's a fantastic idea, but *Dragon's Den line* "I'm out".

Maybe let someone else on the team handle the "review" videos (comparing performance and cost versus competitors and all that) and just stick to making the "wow this is cool" videos yourself (without talking about whether you'd recommend buying it or not)? There's definitely been plenty of "this is totally baller and I'm gonna talk about it even though literally nobody can afford it" videos before.

I have one (admittedly really weird) gripe with the framework. Standard loadout comes with 4 USB-C modules. These are $9 each in the configuratior. Ok, reasonable. But… The modules connect via… USB-C… Wouldn’t it be a much better use of your money to get 4 other modules and if for whatever reason you need a USB-C connection just pull a module out and connect directly?

One word Linus: DUH! Yeah, Yeah, blah blah blah...disclaimer...blah blah blah...thanks for letting us know but you should know by now that we viewers expect nothing less from you. One of the reasons we watch is because you as much one of us as you are a mouthpiece for us. You have the channel. You've always used it the way an ethical, prudent, trustworthy individual would and we thank you for that. So, just keep being you and we'll keep watching. Welcome to the game of finance. I'm expecting you will enjoy it. You're at the age where if you can make higher risk, higher return investments you should. Just be careful my friend, don't let your passion, your inside knowledge on the industry and a strong economy convince you that you're making investments that cannot fail. There are always risks involved. Up until 9/11 no one was thinking that they could lose their entire business or entire investment nest egg because some jerks decided to fly a 747 into a high rise building. Wishing you the best and expecting to be able to check out youtube for regular, interesting videos from LTT for years to come. See you around.
