IDK if anyone here is familiar with the NexDock 360(https://nexdock.com/explore-nexdock/) but the basic concept is it’s laptop without a processor, mean’t to be plugged into an external device like a phone, steam deck, Nintendo switch, etc.
Since it has no processor it can be made for cheap, has good battery life, doesn’t need active cooling, and by extension it’s super thin and light. It’s basically a glorified USB-C hub + accessories masquerading as a laptop.
It seems to me that the framework laptop would be a good candidate to allow a similar use case with “relatively low investment” from the framework team. We would just need a new “usb-c hub” mainboard.
Would anyone else also be interested in this usecase? Thoughts?
