No way that can happen it’s not AI, but users can hurt themselves with knives for example, but I imagine the edges of the laptop, are quite tight and even a careless user wouldn’t damage their hand if used as designed.
I felt the same way. I’m not really fond of those unsightly gaps. Hopefully they’ll be tighter in production, but if not, I hope they will eventually give us the option to get one solid piece (at least centered trackpad).
I am also eagerly waiting for an option to buy trackpad module on the left, without a cutout for the spacers/fillers. In all the videos I have seen, there is a clear and quite big gap between those parts and it will definitely annoy and irritate the hand, and also just looks bad and flimsy.
On short term, I am hoping dbrand makes a cover for trackpad to solve the issue temporarily.
I’m sure they will not irritate one’s hand, Framework is not going to release something like that.
Be aware that the videos thus far have only been prototypes, and most other companies don’t even let reviewers handle such prototypes. Other companies definitely go through stages where things don’t work and fit as well as they will in production, but we just don’t get to see that.
You want a solid left sided trackpad module? I wouldn’t expect them to ever create left, right, and center full width / no-spacer trackpad modules. A big point of their design is not to need that. And there are inherent costs in just stocking and processing additional items, overhead in keeping stock at all fulfillment centers. It’s not a good choice to stock additional items when there really is no need. 3rd parties might create 3d-printed left, right, and center no-spacer trackpad modules. Maybe where you’d transfer over your touchpad electronics. But if you’re obsessive enough that you can’t live with seeing a couple lines on the side, you’re not going to want most 3d prints.
