I just got my first framework laptop the amd 13 and exploring it!
I had ordered 4 expansion cards for the slots. A USBC-C, USB-A, HDMI and ethernet.
The problem is that ethernet is not like the rest and it’s kind of ugly and above all protruding on the right of the laptop. This was not seen when buying it. Would have loved a card that does not protrude.
But anyhow, the question here is until I get something else (or a dummy card as suggested here: Null expansion card) is it bad to leave that slot unused. Can it gather dust and somehow damage the connector at the slot or the laptop in general?
