Too many technology companies make is hard to repair and upgrade their devices. Consumers should support companies that honor our right to repair and upgrade. Technology is expensive and uses valuable materials that should not be thrown out because one piece malfunctions or wears out (like the battery). I’ve been building and repairing PCs since the late ’80s, but laptops have been much harder for enthusiasts to self-maintain. The Framework company was founded on the notion that laptops should be modular, repairable and long-lasting. The company will also foster a community to build its own I/O modules. This is a great idea that is now shipping products to the public.
