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.

This is the way they should all be built. Way back whenn.. I bought the sager ( alienware, falconware) laptop. It was a beast but fully buildable. Whe. This gets touch.. I will def be ordering. The right guy to be backing this product. Following you since your start.

This reminds me of the modular phone that was getting attention before Google bought it and never spoke another word about it. Hopefully the Framework team doesn’t fall for the same trick.

@Framework, all you have to do is stick on decent stylus compatible screen and I'll give you $2,500 for that device right now. No joke.

In response to your 'why have clips when you can have magnets....' I blame magnetic bits in laptops and keyboard hand rests for at least 3 destroyed credit card strips. thankfully that is really not an issue anymore since the U.S. is finally out of the dark ages and uses chips now. Only about 10 years behind the rest of the developed world, who have all been nfid for awhile now.
Alluvian 8 horas atrás
I am not even in the market for a laptop and I want one of these. I have not gotten to the screen part yet. I hope it has a touchscreen option, as that is a dealbreaker for me to not have in a laptop. I don't even use it that much, but when I want to use it, it needs to be there.
Alluvian 8 horas atrás
Aaaand just got to that part. Nope. Don't want at all anymore. Maybe they will offer that one day.

Asus are now ripping off their customers, they claim certain laptops are HDD upgradeable for example the Vivobook M451 even boasts about it in their product Overview Only one small downside to this, what you may ask? Asus have removed the Gasket - Cable and Mylar and you have to purchase them separately, of which none of this is stated in their product overview in fact it's only when you go to fit the HDD you quickly realise there is nothing to fit too??????? what makes this even more funnier is that Asus in fact no one has the parts. Absolute scam. Asus's reason for not supplying these parts were, people may throw them away and not recycle causing harm to the environment????????????????????????????????

"WHERE'S MY TYPE A PORT? THE DELL'S NOT EVEN F&$#@ING THINNER!" 😂 I know it's an integrated unit, but this is exactly why I stand by my LG Gram. Way more portable and STILL HAS FULL SIZE USB AND HDMI for days! It's like taking away headphone jacks on phones. It's an arbitrary and annoying dictation.

@GammΩ I do distinctly remember him praising the note 9 back in 2018. He loves it.
GammΩ 14 horas atrás
@b888he just prefers it. Maybe he switches to Fold3 if the short thingy works
b888 14 horas atrás
@GammΩ well I'm pretty sure he has enough money for a S21 Ultra & should have got a free review unit as well. Note 9 is one of my favorite notes too. It's feature rich, still solid performance & classy. My dad has a note 8 and I still want to best it by buying a note 9 but my concern s are software updates and battery life. Pretty aure SD845 should last for 2021 and probably even half of 2022. But software and battery life are a major concerns, note 9 doesn't even have official custom roms/aosp support that xiaomi phones have. I don't think 5G is personally going to that much of an issue as its not widespread where I live. Found an offer for $200, might just jump on it.
GammΩ 15 horas atrás
He said it many times, he likes the phone, would take the Fold but it has a weird bug that makes it impossible to use the BRvid shorts, which he needs for work. So he keeps daily driving the Note when he doesnt test one

I have a question about the charger. It has been a few hours science I mailed the Support team of Framework, but I cant wait because I need to buy the laptop in USA and send it to Argentina (it's my actual residence country). The charger only supports an input of 120/140 volts or supports 220/240 volts? @ Linus Tech Tips

In regards to solid rigidity despite being really thin. It's all about profiling, bracing and anchoring. This is how we can make a platform you can walk and jump on with barely any flex, using sheet metal not much thicker than a few layers of aluminium foil. You can do a lot of it with plastics too, but sandwich and anchor some pretty thin polycarbonate or nylon with thin steel - you got yourself some serious wizardry.

Could be interesting prospect for small computer shops. Being able to buy parts from framework. Then being able to have their workshop techs preconfigure machines based on customer demand rather then having to buy machines based on the whims of various hardware manufacturers. The repair angle is also nice. Since often an unrepairable laptop can loose a small computer shop money if they come in. Although considering the PCs that sell in my area. I'm excited for when they can start offering budget components. Celerons or Pentiums to be exact.

Honestly so over my Dell laptop after the Dell repair center did a number on my laptop, the next computer repair shop I sent it too even called me up complaining of how shitty of a job they did with the repair(btw when I got it back from the Dell repair center, it came back with more problems then I originally had, which was I just needed a charging port replaced), they didn't even seat the ssd correctly according to the other repair shop. And the keyboard is no longer working right anymore and it's not a driver issue, and a replacement part from my research is basically unobtainable unless your a certified Dell repair technician and get it straight from dell for a stupid amount of money or pay even more to buy a broken version of the same model laptop and hope it has a working keyboard; definitely gonna consider these guys for my next laptop, hopefully they can come with/work with Nvidia graphics so I can run my simulation software on it
