The framework publicity engine continues. This time lots of really great constructive discussion on hacker news The Framework is the most exciting laptop I've used | Hacker News
I love how quickly the conversation turned to a port war. Apparently Framework’s IO modules are “nothing more than clip on dongles.” Their only acceptable solution is to make a laptop with:
- 5+ USB A ports with a mix of USB versions
- DIN keyboard and mouse ports (separate)
- DB9 serial
- DB25 serial
- DB25 parallel
- Full size HDMI
- Mini HDMI
- Full size DisplayPort
- Mini DisplayPort
- Full set of audio ports
- Full size MIDI in and out
- Barrel charging port
- 0 USB C Ports
Please remind me not to subscribe to them.
Described one perfect machine with every port but not the most versatile one to be salty sounds about right
I’ll admit I was a bit salty after reading that thread. Apologies.
Although, I recall a comment that said USB C was worthless because you can only find cheap, unreliable cables for it. Apparently, none of the other ports have this problem
As for that being a perfect machine, I challenge you to fit all those ports in a 13 inch laptop!
