Whose fault is it that the PC industry has never, ever seen an upgradeable laptop design succeed? Ours.
Yes, each of us bears the blame for never, ever seeing the laptop blossom into a mobile version of the desktop, with infinite upgrade capabilities that run until the end of time. But this isn’t about finger-pointing. For all our good intentions, there are some very good reasons why we’re not acting on our ideals.
For the sake of argument, let’s agree that Framework’s new laptop, which you can upgrade or change, is a good thing. But how many of us actually agree? I know people who actually think it’s fine to take a five-year-old laptop back to the company to have it “recycled” and then while they buy a newer one.
