At the moment, I don’t need a new laptop. But should I ever need one (which will probably be someday), it will be the Framework Laptop.

The display edges have shrunk a bit, there is a model with a faster processor and the battery is a bit bigger. The Verge has published a video where they describe their first impressions of the new generation.

I just upgraded my PC with a WiFi M.2 card with an Intel AX200 chipset (and two antennas), which supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5. No more adapters for Bluetooth! Now I’m just waiting for my “Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Desktop” mouse and keyboard and I have a few cables less on my desktop. 😄

All devices where also refurbished or second hand devices, because I didn’t want to spend so much money on new hardware. And I couldn’t upgrade them more because they were already maxed out.
