AMD motherborad in the same enclosure?

this laptop is basically perfect it’s everything I could ever want. except for the Intel CPU. I know that they aren’t horrendously terrible, but for the things I do, ryzen is a better option. If or when a ryzen CPU/ motherboard thing comes out, could I just put that in the same enclosure as these intel ones that are out now. And just swap in an AMD cpu when those become available?

To paraphrase MKBHD, Never. Ever. Buy a tech product on the promise of future updates. He said software updates, but it should be equally valid for hardware too.

I think most people following this product hope that many more motherboards be them AMDx86, ARM, RISC-5 and future Intel do come out.


Yes, you can swap out the entire Intel motherboard for one with Ryzen on it when it exists. Also yes, I think MKBHD’s advice here does make sense if you care more about Ryzen than the full modularity and repairability aspect of Framework, as there are still other big-name laptops that allow you to replace some components with relative ease (but not all of them like Framework.)
