The Framework Laptop

The time has come for consumer electronics
products that are designed to last, without
sacrificing performance, quality, or style.

Upgrading a Framwork Laptop

"As devices become less and less repairable, it’s always heartening when companies build devices with an eye on sustainability. After all, repairing the machine you already own will almost always be more friendly to the environment than buying a new one."


"Thin like an XPS 13, but repairable like a beige box? We want to believe."

Ars Technica

"Enter Framework, which pledges to finally bring the Holy Grail home to Camelot with a modular, do-it-yourself and upgradeable laptop. Being a witness to all of the prior quest failures, well, we have our doubts. Many of them. But after talking at length with Framework founder Nirav Patel we again found our hope rekindled and maybe, just maybe this time someone will succeed."

Framework Laptop customization

Deeply Customizable to Your Needs

Electronics products don’t need to be one-size-fits all. In addition to the Expansion Card system that lets you choose your ports, the Framework Laptop lets you swap your keyboard language and layout and pick from a range of color options for the magnetic-attach bezel.

Upgrade Framework Laptop with ease

Upgrade and Repair with Ease

Along with socketed storage, WiFi, and two slots of memory, the entire mainboard can be swapped to boost performance as we launch updated versions with new CPU generations.

High-use parts like the battery, screen, and keyboard are easy to replace. QR codes on each item take you directly to guides and the listing in our web store.

In addition to releasing new upgrade modules regularly and ensuring replacement parts are available, we’re opening up the ecosystem to enable a community of partners to build and sell compatible modules through the Framework Marketplace.

Assembled by Us or Built by You

The Framework Laptop is available in a range of pre-configured models running Windows 10 Home or Pro.

For those of you who love to tinker, we’ve also created the Framework Laptop DIY Edition, the only high-end notebook available as a kit of modules that you can customize and assemble yourself, with the ability to choose Windows or install your favorite Linux distribution.

Regardless of the path you take, we include a screwdriver in the box so you can upgrade over time.

100% Yours

It’s time for long-lasting products that respect your right to repair and upgrade. We’re bringing this mission to notebooks with the Framework Laptop and to additional categories as we go. We can’t wait to build a better consumer electronics industry together.

Green mountains and sky


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.

Framwork Laptop camera hardware switch


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.

“Framework's innovative design with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors brings performance and modularity to the thin-and-light laptop category while delivering new design and sustainability options for consumers.”

Josh Newman, Vice president and General manager of Laptop Innovation at Intel’s Client Computing Group

“At Western Digital, we purpose-build every drive and we’re excited that the high-performance WD_BLACK™ SN850 and SN750 gaming SSDs will help support and drive Framework’s mission.”

Sven Rathjen, Vice President, Marketing, Flash Business Unit at Western Digital

"In line with our mission to reduce environmental waste, BizLink is honored to support Framework in the development of its innovative and sustainable personal computing tools that will enable a brighter future for generations to come."
