Sorry, I'm not an economist. :-)

Current laptops are insecure. Joanna's Stateless laptop fixes that as
best as can be with mainstream chips, we need RISC-V for more open
silicon (along with a standard process for vendors to send x-rays of
PCBs that customers can verify for silicon backdoors).

Current laptops are nearly disposable devices. A modular system can be
reused, buy a new dev board and replace your last one, not buy a new laptop.
