So I don’t need to start another thread on adding a touchscreen replacement option for the current non-touch panel the laptop ships with. It is probably coming when Frameworks gains more financial stability, along with bringing in more staff.
I’ll get the touchscreen part “replacement” when it comes out, but I am curious if Framework would want to capitalize on the opportunity to re-purpose the old screens by either having users send them back to be mounted in a slim enclosure to be used as a portable monitor, or even selling the enclosure as a new product for users to build themselves. If possible, have it get both power and data off of a single USB-C connection to the laptop, or maybe give it 1-3 additional expansion slots for use as a hub that is still compatible with the framework expansion card system.
Again, I understand that the possibility of future products years from now hinges on how Framework does in the next year or so. its just an interesting idea that may align with Framework’s MO of being more than just a company making high-quality yet user-serviceable laptops built to last.
