It looks like they’re selling entire mainboards which is a total gamechanger for laptop upgradability
so sick, i’ve got no wishes for my thinkpad to give out on me but…
same here. unfortunately framework doesn’t offer a trackpoint

The Framework laptop is amazing, finally giving control to customers, however. has a big problem, the cost, this laptop is aimed to end planned obsolescence, but the laptop costs ~1000$, so it is likely cheaper to buy a standard 400$ laptop and every time it “breaks” simply replace. most people do not need high performance anyways.
It’s the first generation of the product, if everything goes well, costs will go down.
