Always wanted to build your own laptop, or at least one that you could upgrade? If so, then Framework’s new fully modular DIY laptop should do the trick. You’ll not only be able to swap out the normal hardware components, like the hard disk and RAM, but the ports, 13.5-inch display, keyboard, battery, Wi-Fi module, and even the complete motherboard with a new one to work with the latest processors. Read more for two hands-on videos and additional information.
The base configuration, priced at $999, features an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. Want something even faster? The $1999 “professional” model comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of internal storage. If you don’t need any of the hardware components and want just the shell, it’ll set you back $749. Pre-orders start today and first shipments begin in July. More information here.

Magnetic-attach bezels are color-customizable to match your style, and the keyboard language can be swapped too,” said the company.
