Hi everyone, I have been interested in fully upgradeable laptops for a very long time and have been disappointed with most offerings on the market. There are the overpriced CLEVO laptops that do tout upgradabality which is usually limited to storage, RAM and GPU. You are stuck with CPUs of a certain generation since the motherboard chipset locks you to a certain generations of CPUs.
My question is, do Framework laptops take care of this issue? Can I freely upgrade the motherboard which means everything else is upgradeable as well, so I essentially have a desktop computer on a laptop form factor?
I got conflicting information on their facebook page, that’s why I am asking it here and would like a confirmation from an actual framework employee that these laptops would behave exactly like a desktop computer would when it comes to upgradeability. For me personally, being able to upgrade everything but the motherboard essentially equals to not being able to upgrade anything, since CPU is the factor that warrants an upgrade for me.
Thanks to all of you in advance.
EDIT: I have watched this video from the CEO and I am glad that the motherboard is indeed easily upgradeable Hands-On with Framework's Fully Modular Laptop! - YouTube
Then I guess there are no concerns on my side
