Modern laptops have secret schematics, glued-in batteries, and mystery components all over. But Reform is the opposite -- it invites both curious makers and privacy aware users to take a look under the hood, customize the documented electronics, and 3D-print their own parts.
We shipped 11 beta units of Reform in December 2018 to collect feedback from early adopters.
