The modular Framework Laptop DIY Edition is now offered with 12th-gen Intel processors, and it can do much more than run basic software. Priced from $1,058 USD fully assembled, it comes standard with a 13.5-inch (2256×1504) LCD screen, an Intel Core i5-1240P CPU with Intel Iris Xe graphics, 1TB WD_Black SN850 NVMe, 8GB of DDR-3200 RAM, a 2.5Gbps Ethernet expansion card, and a 55Wh battery.
All of the 12th-Gen Intel processors use the company’s newest Alder Lake CPU architecture, which combines high-performance P-cores with ultra efficient E-Cores to maximum performance under heavy load while reducing power usage during idle. Already have a Framework laptop? You can just pick up a 12th-gen motherboard with the Intel COre i5-1240P for $449, while the official “upgrade kit”, which consists of both the motherboard and the redesigned top cover, starts at $538. We’re still waiting for the DIY FreeBOT modular robot kit.
