The Framework is the most exciting laptop I've used
Ignore career advice from established writers: We don't know anything about breaking in today. Colophon: Recent publications, upcoming/recent appearances, current writing projects, current reading. Not only did these writers enter a fundamentally different - and long-extinct publishing world than the current one, but their relationship to the current market was fundamentally different from my own. These writers didn't have any career advice for me per se, but I wouldn't have had a career without them - without them taking me seriously, even at a very young age. Writers who are at the same place in their development as you have advice that is far more likely to be applicable to your situation. What's more, they're also the kinds of writers you should be seeking out to join in a critiquing group - your peers. The computer performs as well or better than my 2019 Thinkpad, but it doesn't need the Thinkpad's proprietary, ~$200 dock - a cheap, $60 device lets me easily connect it to all my peripherals and my desktop monitor, over USB-C. No drivers or configuration needed!
