Pero, my Asus laptop, is signalling that it will soon join its namesake in machine heaven. Maybe there is a lesson here about not naming computers after sympathetic machine intelligences whose plot arc ends with their violent deaths. Be assured I will select a more durable namesake for Pero’s replacement.
dithering online research, the best fit for my needs (ease of use, repairability, actually being available for purchase) is Framework’s Laptop 13 (12th Gen). I am about half way to the purchase price.
