In October 2022, we launched the Framework refurbished program in the US and Canada as a sustainable and affordable way to join the Framework community. We received positive feedback from both the community and the media, excited by the opportunity to give a second life to excellent-quality refurbished products.
Since then, we’ve been collecting and preparing units, and we are now ready to expand our refurbished program into the EU, as well as scale our product offerings in the US and Canada!
We now offer three configurations of the Refurbished Framework Laptop DIY Edition (11th Gen Intel® Core™) in Germany, France, Ireland, Austria and the Netherlands. Each laptop is pre-packaged with an EU power adapter, 4 Expansion Cards (2 USB-C, 1 HDMI, 1 USB-A), and pre-installed WiFi. Memory, storage and OS are not included. You can bring your own or pick them up in the Framework Marketplace. All refurbished Framework products offered in the EU receive the same 2-year limited warranty that our new products do.
Additionally, we now offer three configurations of the Refurbished Framework Laptop DIY Edition (12th Gen Intel® Core™) in the US and Canada.

Refurbished laptops and modules typically start from the small number of returns we get from our 30-day return guarantee, and go through a rigorous cleaning and testing process. Read our Closing the loop blog post to learn more about our refurbishment methods.
Linux on the Framework Laptop
As you get your refurbished laptop set up, remember that you can either bring Windows 11 or your favorite Linux distro or BSD. We've been updating our Linux guides to cover the latest releases: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS, Mint 21.1, Fedora 37, and Manjaro 22.0.
