We’ve repeatedly mentioned Framework’s laptop, a slim and lightweight PC that users can easily upgrade, customize and repair. It was high time for this kind of thing, yet Framework is now going even further by launching, in partnership with Google, a Chromebook (a laptop that runs ChromeOS) and adheres to the same DIY principle. The Chromebook works off the same expansion card system as the Windows edition, which means that you can, for example, choose your ports and where you want them. It weighs 1.3 kg or 2.87 lbs, its 3:2 display measures 2256 x 1504 pixels, and it comes equipped with a 12th Gen Core i5-1240P. Framework tweeted that Google is committed to putting out “a minimum of 8 years of security updates” for the Framework Chromebook Edition. Preorders are off and running in the US and Canada with a starting price of 1,000 USD. Shipping is for early December.

The Verge, Monica Chin, “Framework’s new Chromebook is upgradable and customizable.”
