Plans for component end-of-life?

Hey All and FW Team!

I’m pretty excited about this product, I hate how entire laptops get discarded (who knows how much of a laptop is actually recycled). I love the fact that we can think about upgrading specific parts, and there’s already a reasonable infrastructure in place to recycle most other PC components like the SSD and memory. I wanted to ask if FW has plans to support an infrastructure to recycle FW specific components - the mainboard and the expansion modules specifically.

I understand that in early days, the focus is going to be on building a good product, making sure supplies are stable (especially in this chip-shortage climate), etc. Just wondering about the long term.



We’re working on ways to re-use the custom modules outside of the Framework Laptop, with the goal of growing the ecosystem and reducing waste.


Glad to hear! Thanks!
