    Final Thoughts
    • Every important component in the laptop is easy to access and replace.
    • Inside the laptop, most components are helpfully labeled to help orient and guide the fixer.
    • The Framework Laptop repair guides are free and easily accessible, and Framework is already selling spare parts right on their website.
    • External ports on the laptop are modular, but the actual USB-C sockets they plug into are soldered to the main board, complicating a potential port replacement.
