I never ever recommend buying a laptop to a client because of repair / upgrade issues if they don’t work in the field, But…
Here I am needing to upgrade my development desktop and aborting that, to buy the Framework laptop instead.
The way I am looking at it, if even 80% of the ideals are met, it is still a better choice than a “big name” brand… No matter how long it lasts.
Personally I have faith that they will be around for a long time. Hopefully avoiding getting bought out and squashed.
Because of the modules I have a glimmer of hope to take my development computer (as a laptop) to the field now… Without it being a 6 lb brick of overpriced laptop.
I am looking forward to the Community developing modules and selling them via Framework marketplace… As I already see many others needing the same type of “special” modules that I do.
