I was considering the Framework vs the i5 X1 Carbon Gen 9 for slightly less money, but decided on the Framework after seeing the responsiveness in the community. Love what Framework are doing and this is partly to support them.
I’m coming from a 6-year old Surface Pro 4 (with display flicker issues and a type cover that died in September, and running mainly with external monitors/remote desktop for the last couple of years).
