Sandy Bridge Posted April 14, 2022 Share Posted April 14, 2022 Has anyone picked up one of these? https://frame.work/products/laptop Looks interesting, I like that going forward you'll be able to replace the whole mobo and keep using the same chassis/screen/etc. Less e-waste, and ought to be less expensive as well. They're available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, and Austria, so semi-decent availability. I'm hoping they eventually have a larger model with slightly more key travel (they have 1.5mm; I'm used to 1.9mm on my current laptop), full-height arrow keys, and perhaps more ports. Still, they have some cool features such as swappable ports, QR codes on the parts so you can look them up and order replacements if need be, and generally making it easy to replace things one component at a time. It still isn't quite as upgradeable as my old Dell with a socketed CPU... but it is easier to swap out some other components like the motherboard and display bezel, and if they come out with a swappable second-gen mobo, they'll be blazing new ground. 1 Desktop: Core i5 2500k "Sandy Bridge" | RX 480 | 32 GB DDR3 | 850 Evo + HDDs | Seasonic 650W | Noctua Fans | 8.1 Pro Laptop: MSI Alpha 15 | Ryzen 5800H | Radeon 6600M | 16 GB DDR4 | 512 GB SSD | 10 Home Laptop history: MSI GL63 (2018) | HP EliteBook 8740w (acq. 2014) | Dell Inspiron 1520 (2007) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
