The framework, a San Francisco-based company, has just announced its first product called a modular skeleton laptop. Laptops have been designed to allow users to continue using machines forever for years. Therefore, it comes with several modular parts, replaced, and can be upgraded.
Design and display
The laptop framework comes in the milled aluminum coating and 15.8mm. It was built around a 13.5-inch display panel with a resolution of 2256 x 1504 pixels, aspect ratio 3: 2, and 400 nits brightness.
There is a 1080p60 webcam on top of the display and the keyboard sports 1.5mm key travel.
Native, laptops are available in three processor options:
Intel Core i5-1135g7.
Intel Core i7-1165g7.
Intel Core i7-1185G7 Lake Tiger
However, this is where things become interesting. Unlike other laptops available on the market, a modular skeleton laptop does not limit you to this processor. Instead, you can exchange processors with newer processors and faster because it is available in the future.
Apart from this, this laptop also displays an expansion card system that allows you to exchange ports on the side of the laptop. You can choose from USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, MicroSD, expansion card 250GB / 1TB fast, headphone amp, and more.
Regardless of internal storage, memory, and Wi-Fi cards, other laptop parts that you can change are keyboards. You can update it to language and whatever layout you want. In addition, the color bezel displays attached magnetically can also be changed.
Software-Wise, the laptop will come preconfigured with Windows 10 Home or Pro. You can also choose to get it as part of the DIY edition of the Framework laptop. It will be available as a module kit you need to customize and build yourself with the choice of your own operating system.
Price and availability
In the United States, the laptop will start shipping in the summer. However, its overall availability and pricing have not yet been confirmed.
In addition, Framework will also allow others to create and sell compatible modules for the laptop through its frame market.
