All this leads me to think that some crowd funding laptop (ideally based upon #openhardware #opensourcehardware) would be a good idea.

The crowd funding dynamic would hopefully ensure that enough of the consumers' requirements regarding longevity, robustness, upgradability, would be fulfilled.

Isn't it kind of ironic?
A few years ago there was this crowd funding initiative called Fairphone that set out to revolutionize the smartphone market by making a modular device.
And at the same time the computer companies turned in the completely opposite direction. Where computers had in the past been a positive example of upgradability and modularity, they now increasingly design devices with high degree of integration.

And all for the good of the customer.
