I was in my uni’s library the other day, studying for midterms , when a random guy recognized my Framework and walked over to ask about it. We ended up chatting for a few minutes as I gave my first impressions and such; all positive thus far by the way.
It was just a cool, memorable, if minor, part of my day and I’m wondering if anyone else has similar stories to share
My Framework is my personal laptop. It won’t make it out into the wild much. I have a corporate laptop, that’s what I travel with. If something happens to it I won’t cry all that much and get a newer, faster replacement. It won’t be a Framework though, $1000 CAD budget for a replacement.
If something were to happen to my Framework I would be very, very sad. And work wouldn’t cover it…
@Fraoch Maybe you can get your work to cover a Framework replacement one component at a time, just piecemeal it together
For real though, gotta protect those personal devices. After someone knocked my laptop off the desk back in first year, shattering the screen, I haven’t trusted using anything larger than a phone in lecture
The way students leave their laptops in the library while they go in search of coffee or snacks makes me cringe…things go missing all the time! I guess they just don’t care for their Macbooks in the same way as we covet our framworks
Not quite on topic for this thread, but I had an interaction where someone was curious about my framework in a university class/lab setting. They were not familiar, and at that point I had only had my framework for about a week. I pointed them to the website and hit on the repairability/ upgrade points and how I like the keyboard. There is interest out there!
