Expand the Possibilities with the Framework Laptop DIY Edition
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!
You can choose to bring your own memory, storage, WiFi, and operating system, or pick from the many options we offer in the Framework Marketplace. With a range of bezel colors and keyboard languages and open design specifications on Expansion Cards, the variety of possible Framework Laptop configurations is endless.
Build it Yourself
The DIY Edition is the only high-end laptop you can customize and assemble yourself from a kit of modules. 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.

Supporting DisplayPort 1.4, for monitors up to 8k 60Hz resolution or up to four simultaneously at 4k 60Hz using four Expansion Cards.
Supporting MicroSD UHS-I cards as well as the new UFS Card standard for a huge performance improvements on read, write, and random access.
1TB and 250GB Storage
Ultra high speed storage, available in two capacities. With a USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface supporting 1000 MB/s read rates and 375 MB/s and 1000 MB/s write rates for 250GB and 1TB respectively. Fast enough to run apps or even boot an operating system from. Small enough to pop out and take with you.
And more coming soon!
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 with three Intel 11th Gen Core i5 and i7 processors options, 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
Maximum Performance in a Quiet System
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 11 to allow you to choose and adjust your preferred balance of performance, silence, and battery life.
Continuous processor load
Load up on Memory & Storage
With two SO-DIMM sockets and one M.2 2280 socket, the Framework Laptop DIY Edition is configurable and upgradeable to an insane 64GB of memory and 8TB of storage. We offer Western Digital’s latest SN850 PCIe Gen 4.0 drives, with maximum read speeds of 7,000 MB/s!
Available in configurations with Windows 11 Home or Windows 11 Pro, as well as no operating system, letting you bring your own. This means you can install Linux too, and we’re working with some of the most popular distributions to maximize compatibility.
With a 55Wh battery, the Framework Laptop gets you through a workday on a single charge. The pack is designed to provide up to 80% of its original capacity at 1000 cycles, and is easy to replace if you ever need to.³
Stereo 2W speakers with 5cc of backvolume generate loud and clear audio. The dual MEMS microphones are connected to a hardware privacy switch, giving you full control.
The Framework Laptop DIY Edition is available with Intel’s latest AX210 WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 modules, and can be upgraded to future standards by replacing the module.
Designed for the Future of Work
The Framework Laptop is designed from the ground up to make you as productive as possible. A high resolution 3:2 aspect ratio display lets you fit more code and creativity on-screen at once. Glare reducing coatings and >400 nit brightness lets you take your work outside too!

Finally, a Great Webcam in a Laptop!
A built-in webcam that lets you look your best on video calls, at last. The Framework Laptop includes a custom 1080p 60fps camera with much larger than average pixels and a high quality wide-angle lens. On top of that, a hardware privacy switch lets you physically cut off power to the image sensor, putting you back in control of your privacy.

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.
The power button has an integrated Fingerprint Reader compatible with Windows Hello for secure and convenient login.
The 115x76.66mm Windows Precision Touchpad has a matte glass surface for high durability and great feel.
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 attach 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.
To support and expand on all the ways the Framework Laptop can be upgraded and customized, we’re also launching a Marketplace for modules and accessories. In addition to the parts and products we make, we’re opening up the ecosystem for other companies and individuals to participate.
We're starting with availability of a wide range of replacement parts:
Battery | Display | Webcam | Enclosure assemblies | Hinges | Input Cover | Touchpad | Keyboard | Fingerprint Reader | Headphone jack | Speakers | Internal cables | Heatsink and Fan
Memory | Storage | WiFi | Mainboards
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. All shipments are fully carbon-offset too.
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.
Every part of the Framework Laptop has a scannable QR code, giving you unprecedented access to documentation, repair guides, replacement and upgrade parts, and insight into design and manufacturing data.
