AI generated summary: I upgraded my non-Apple laptop with a bigger battery for longer usage, from 36 to 73 watt-hours. Additional upgrades include memory from 16GB to 40GB and storage from 512GB to 1TB, showcasing the benefits of non-Apple hardware in terms of upgradeability and cost-effectiveness.

Using non-Apple hardware usually has one big advantage: Much better upgradeability.

Even though my laptop isn’t as modifiable as the Framework Laptop (it was a lot cheaper, though), I just upgraded its battery from the 36 watt-hour version to double that, 73 watt-hours. Pretty good for a 14" laptop, I think. Based on past battery performance, this new battery should easily last 10 hours of my typical usage.

Past upgrades: 16 GB to 40 GB memory, 512 GB to 1 TB storage.
