The point that some people have tried to make is that HiDPI isn’t even necessarily the enemy here rather fractional scaling is. 2256 x 1504 is too low of a resolution for 2x scaling and too high of a resolution for 1x scaling that’s just a fact. I’m sure that there is a reason why they went with this resolution but it’s definitely not ideal. Bear in mind that in 2020 because of COVID it was really hard to source screens for a while so that could have swayed their decision one way or the other. If you want a LoDPI display for better battery life then sure hopefully Framework will source a 1920x1280 screen for you but if you want a HiDPI display that just works out of the box then instead hope that they source a 3000x2000 screen that will look good at a 2x scale.
All of that said, Gnome running on Wayland at 1.5 x scaling on the Framework as is isn’t so bad that you notice anything. It’s always interesting to me to see what the different dealbreakers are for people. For me any blur caused by fractional scaling which I can’t even notice when I’m using the Framework didn’t come close to tipping the scales on whether I should get this laptop or not.
