MNT REFORM

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.

- A free and open source modular laptop that respects your rights

- Customize and repair it yourself with 3D printed and standard parts

- Reclaim your privacy and security: No microphone, camera or management engine

- Interchangeable and customizable motherboard, slim mechanical keyboard and trackball, each with open firmware
