Modular & Upgradeable

We’ve built the Framework Laptop from the ground up to be upgradeable in ways that no other high-performance notebook is. In addition to adding memory and storage, you can choose the ports you want, customize the bezel color and keyboard language, and even upgrade your entire mainboard!

Framework Screwdriver
Easy to Repair

We made the Framework Laptop convenient and cost effective to keep working great for as long as you want it to. The only tool you need to swap any part of it is the screwdriver we include in the box, and we publish easy to follow repair guides and videos.

Thin & Light

Thoughtful design and a precision formed and milled aluminum housing enables repairability and upgradeability without adding bulk. Coming in at just 15.85mm thick and 1.3kg, the Framework Laptop delivers the modularity of a desktop in the form factor of a thin and light 13.5” notebook.

We have a variety of Expansion Cards in development including high end headphone amps, Arduino-compatible microcontrollers, and more. We’re also opening the spec and sharing reference designs to enable partners and the community to help grow the Expansion Card ecosystem.

Upgradeable High-Performance Mainboard

Available in three configurations of Intel 11th Gen Core i5 and i7 processors, offering fantastic performance, great power efficency, PCIe 4.0, and Intel’s new Xe Graphics, delivering a massive leap over previous generations. Even better, the Framework Laptop is the only high-performance notebook with a replaceable mainboard that lets you upgrade to new CPU generations if you ever need a boost in the future.²

Upgrading Framework Laptop mainboard

Maximum Performance, Minimum Noise

We’ve designed the thermal system in the Framework Laptop to handle 28W continuous processor load³. By making space for an unusually large 65mmx5.5mm cooling fan and carefully designing our airflow paths, we’ve done this without sacrificing quietness. Our dual 5mm heatpipes and copper fin pack allows the CPU to run up to 60W turbo³. We’ve also enabled multiple power profiles in Windows 10 to allow you to choose and adjust your preferred balance of performance, silence, and battery life.

Load up on Memory & Storage

The Framework Laptop comes in pre-built configurations with up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage. We use Western Digital’s SN730 SSDs to deliver 3,400 MB/s read speeds with great power efficiency. With two SO-DIMM sockets and one M.2 2280 socket, all models are upgradeable to an insane 64GB of memory and 8TB of storage.

1.5mm Key-Travel Keyboard

The Framework Laptop has a great feeling keyboard with a toggleable backlight. While most compact notebooks have shrunk to between 0.8mm and 1.2mm travel, we’ve chosen a better balance of 1.5mm to deliver excellent feel while keeping the system highly portable.

Choose your Language

Both the keyboard alone and the full input cover are replaceable, letting you swap languages and layouts. We’ll be expanding our language offerings as we go, including languages never before built into a notebook. In addition, we offer stealthed out black and clear keyboards with no artwork at all.


Electronics products don’t need to be one-size-fits all. The magnet attached bezel makes it easy to access the screen for replacements, and it also comes in a range of colors to let you personalize your Framework Laptop.

The single best way to reduce the environmental impact of electronics is to make them last longer. You can repair and upgrade the Framework Laptop to make it work great for as long as you need it to. On top of that, it uses a 50% post consumer recycled (PCR) aluminum housing, 30% PCR plastic, and fully recyclable materials for packaging.

camera and audio hardware

Built-in hardware privacy switches give you complete control over access to the camera and microphones. Our embedded controller firmware is fully open source, and we don’t preload any extra software. You can even install a privacy focused OS on a Storage Expansion Card and take it with you.
