    ARM is closed too. Also, lack of standardization.

    Only RISC-V is open, modern and innovative.
    Arm is closed but more than two companies can use it at least.

    I also hope risc-v will take over arm but one battle at a time.

      The RAM sits on the CPU package, so that's not going to happen.
      Then I'll settle for some PCIE slots and video ports.

        That is more a issue of bad defaults. Uboot is totally up to the task of consumer firmware. It supports standard video output methodes, keyboard input as well as menus. It supports to boot standard EFI targets. Plug in a USB stick with generic arm debian and just boot the installer like on any other system. I have such a system and its very nice to use.

        And the device tree is provided by the firmware, so it acts as ACPI just without being shitty.

          that's not happening. the extreme ewaste production disease is spreading to desktop, say goodbye to modularity and say hello to heavy manufacturer lockdown and hardcoded lifespan, it will be a miracle if their 50 gorrillions transistors chips last more than 3 years...
          tech illiteracy and people not realizing what is taken from them will be the cause of our doom, sacrifying freedom and user/environment-friendliness for a bit of conveniency and a few worthless bigger numbers will be the cause of our doom...

            Soldered RAM is a no-go, how about USB-C docking capabilities?

            Edit: I've just seen the internal picture https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/stor...24-06-05_1.png, 2 fans are typically only needed for dGPU or super high TDP CPUs. Doesn't make me confident this will be efficient.

              Good to see development starting on a Linux-focused high performance ARM64 laptop.

              I'm also hoping that Framework will soon announce an ARM64-based board option for their modular laptops as well.

                You know what.. I might get this just because it sounds kinda interesting.

                  I don't think any SnapDragon X Elite products have been announced with upgradeable RAM. Also no RAM slots because no DDR5 support. However, LPCAMM2 LGA sockets might be possible.

                  If you just want to escape x86 and have upgradeable RAM, fortunately the RISC-V side has you covered

                  Does it? At least some pictures float around where the RAM is off-package.

                    good luck convincing the "arrow must go up" crowd with that when the average joe is living in a simulation inside some walled-garden

                    socketable cpu are also important, motherboards usually fail much sooner than a cpu

                      Yes that and I'm wondering about the refresh rate of the screen. I'm hoping it's 144Hz or more.
