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.

I actually wrote a long comment comparing the price range of a Framework Laptop with a Dell (Alienware M15 R6 Gaming Laptop to be precise), but couldn't post it publicly for whatever reason.. So just the gist / bottom line: the Framework Laptop is $1,975.00 - not the barebones option, otherwise known as the bring your own stuff option, but the one with an actual SSD (1TB), 16GB RAM, WiFi, Win 10 Home, power adapter, ports.. The Alienware (order code WNR6M15EYTUS), similar specs but with a dedicated graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB) is $1,916.00 .. so much for the notion of this being such a socialist machine, designed by engineers who have the consumer in mind.. no Linus, it's just a gimmick that you can pay to put together.. but anyway, I hope you do good on your investment..

Hey guys in the comments, you can keep them afloat by buying their product or suggesting it to your tech-nerd friends. We're not converting Mac users, but we will convert anyone who wants this and lots of people do

I would really, really love to see companies go in this design direction. If they actually cared about the environment, like they claim to (i.e. no power bricks in new phones) they'd adopt this design philosophy. But it's obvious that they don't actually care and they are just saving $10/unit on a power brick.

This is a gimmick. Computer builders have been able to do this for a long time. You still have to buy all the parts to upgrade from Framework and I don't see it faring well with a liquid spill. It's a neat idea but I'll stick with my ROG laptops. You can't even get this thing with a discrete graphics card. It's probably great for the average office worker or business specialist that travels but let's face it. It's nothing special. And how do we know Linus isn't already invested and/or taking payment to promote like 95% of the channels out there.

Funy I just disassemble an old 2007 toshiba laptop, and as an engineer I can see how it was very easy on 2007 to make a product like this possible, any how I was disassembling it because I know I can use the oprical drives and other components in my newly built PC.

This is amazing you have really easy to store 1tb blocks that slot in. You could buy buy alot of the blocks and have unlimited storage. Have one for photos one for games (lets be honest more than one) have one for videos or data or whatever you could easily have the best of both worlds of physical copies and network connection!!!!!

If these guys are still a thing when the time comes I will definitely be getting one for my little sister so that she doesn’t have to worry about getting a whole new laptop whenever she needs to upgrade. If this was in high school I probably would’ve gotten it but right now I am running a MSI GE 76

I’d love to get one, but their website is not very accessible to the blind. When going to the configuration page, everything is presented in images which aren’t accessible to screen readers. I’m sure they’ll fix that though if it’s politely brought to their attention.

This is what happens when you get engineers together who worked for various companies and felt repressed by what they could do and they come together and make something better. We see this a lot now days with game studios.

I was pretty far into the video and my thoughts were "That's pretty cool but I don't feel like I wanna buy it" and then I got to 16:30 and heard about the battery disconnect which immediately changed my mind to "Oh my god take all of my money right this instant"

Linus: "If you have your laptop plugged into wall that can cause battery swelling and be a fire hazzard" Me who has had my dell inspiron 17 plugged to a wall for 5 years straight: *"im in danger"* P.s. it barely runs rocket league above 60 fps low settings and lowered resolution. Its pain. Pure pain.. dont have a job so i cant buy an actual pc.. fml.

So even if the frameworks battery only last half as long as the competitors if it takes you only 5 minutes to change a battery, you just need 2 batteries. That way you swap them when you need instead of finding a plug to charge your laptop. They only need to provide a charging dock for batteries which would allow you to recharge the empty ones at any time. So basically you could have endless wireless power throughout the day

Whats crazy is that this is becoming a real option for me. I just bought a top of the line Macbook Pro and honestly I am kinda unimpressed. I have had Macbooks for years and they were bomb proof, now I feel like I am holding a piece of paper. The keyboard as well is dogshit for this price. Sticky keys etc. I am losing my mind with this thing.

Whats funny is this is good for the consumer, and probably good for the parts manufacturers too, meaning if these get popular they'd most likely cut out the middle man that is these tech giants who make a killing off abusing the little guys. Like how I imagine selling lightbulbs is more profitable than selling a whole replacement ceiling fan. When a total fix for an old computer is a 20 dollar part, maybe even $100 for an upgrade, there would be no point in people buying whatever these tech giants lazily shit out.

It's not all about upgrading it, it's mainly about longevity. Your battery is no good now? replace it. Your keyboard is worn out? Replace it. Your trackpad broke? Replace it. I would 100% own this laptop due to the fact you can replace parts and upgrade over time so you don't have to buy a whole new laptop every 5 years.

Yo Linus or anybody at LMG, you said that the fairphone's ability to replace the USB c is one of it's strongest features for repairability, yet it doesn't seem that to be the case for this laptop, room for improvement. Also what's with reducing an USB c to a single usb a ?

Have seen BRvid videos describing these computers as a niche-market product. I do not agree. They should sell this product to schools, Universities and companies. I mean, easy-to-repair computers like this are an IT-departments dream. If they can introduce this product such places, they could sell a lot more of them, then if they only market them to “tinkerers”.

I do not understand their purpose. They seem to be anti-Apple and anti-Microsoft gimmick. Many companies like MSI and Asus sell laptops which can be easily opened, repaired, and upgraded (as much as this laptop can). These companies void warranty when you open, but Framework allow you to open only. If it gets damaged during repair/upgrade or if you use parts which Framework do not provide then warranty is void. Basically you are tied to Framework if you buy their laptop, which isn't good. And in 3-4 years this laptop will be obsolete and you will require a new laptop anyways. CPU/GPU upgrades are not a thing and if you are replacing motherboard then why not replace whole laptop for a change. They have created cute tiny modules for ports and SSD but they are too small to get lost easily. We all know how many stuff we lose. And if even 2-3 people bring the same laptop to a meeting and put those tiny modules on a table then it will be a nightmare to figure out which belongs to whom. Personally I do not like their vision. As a laptop person I would prefer to have a laptop which I never need to open. I do not like opening my laptop to clean fans. I want a laptop which never gets dirty from inside and if I want to add RAM and storage then I would prefer to have option to choose which RAM and storage I want at the time of purchase. Companies lie all the time about the parts they use. If Framework should have focused on that vision where they have transparency in parts they use, it would have been really innovative and revolutionary. I would prefer that I know what parts companies are using at the time of purchase and better to have an option to choose which part I want.
