The San Francisco-based startup Framework has announced work on a modular laptop that users can customize and improve on their own. Almost all parts of the car are subject to modifications – up to the Wi-Fi module.
The founder of the startup, Nirav Patel, said the Framework was created to end the current problem of all large manufacturing companies that launch a product and then just forget about it.
The base laptop layout will receive a 13.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2256×1504, an 11-generation Intel processor, up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and from 4 TB of NVMe storage. In addition, a 55 watt battery, 1080p / 60 FPS webcam. The laptop is made of aluminum and weighs almost a pound and a half.
Users will be able to replace everything: keyboard, screen, ports (which are accessible via expansion cards) and more. The startup will sell the components itself to make it easier for buyers to navigate. The components will have a QR code that will allow you to go directly to the upgrade page.
The Framework laptop will go on sale this summer. On the startup’s website, it will be possible to pre-assemble the preferred assembly, as well as choose the OS – Linux or Windows 10. Prices are still unknown.
