Framework’s laptop is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to invest in a sustainable, repairable, and upgradable laptop knowing parts will remain available for it if something gets damaged or its time for an upgrade.
Framework Laptop is available in two build versions, prebuilt and DIY. The only difference being the RAM, storage, and operating system aren’t installed on the DIY version.
Since all the parts for the Framework Laptop is available on its website, repairs are extremely easy to source parts for, which is what most people will use them for.
A third option is to purchase all the parts separately, for anyone wanting to build their own laptop, like they would a desktop PC. This option is more expensive than the pre-built and DIY options.
