batch5 here, can’t wait! so excited.

I hope the samsung 980 (nonpro) nvme works in mine. I am planning on installing arch on the nvme using my desktop box, hopefully to give me a jump start for when mine arrives.

Batch 5 gang! Hope it comes sooner than later!

Intel i7-1165G7
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro
64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3200 - Crucial webstore $262.16 after tax
2TB - WD BLACK SN750 NVMe - amazon $264.30 after tax
Windows 10 Pro - Ebay $52.99 after tax
US/Canada Power adapter
Expansion Cards:
MicroSD Expansion Card - 1
USB-A - 2
DisplayPort Expansion Card - 1
USB-C Expansion Card - 2
HDMI Expansion Card

By buying the Storage, Memory & OS separately I managed to save $338.55 compared to if I had bought them bundled with the system. The fact that Framework makes that a possibility is a huge deal to me. With that money saved I can put it away as funds to buy any replacement parts or upgrades I might need in the next few years. At the current market price listings that’s enough in savings to cover the cost of a replacement keyboard, battery, screen, hinge set, speaker kit and wifi chip!

Mid-tier i7 DIY Kit

I just bought a new laptop in June, but had to support Framework once I heard about them. I also love the 13.5" form factor. I am planning on using this machine for a linux machine, but haven’t decided on the distro yet. Like you all, I hope this gets delivered sooner rather than later.

Hey everyone! I placed my order at the beginning of October and have been impatiently waiting ever since! I am pretty excited about what FrameWork team has done here. I hesitated for a while as my Early 2015 13’’ Macbook Air is still working well. Yeah, 4GB of ram + 2 Cores up to 2.7 Ghz is not much, but it gets the job done! My wife finally pushed me over the edge though. Plus I really wanted to support the company! Great job guys!

Here’s what I got:

CPU: Intel i7-1165G7
RAM: 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200
Storage: 500GB WD_BLACK™ SN850 NVMe™
WiFi: Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®
Expansion Cards: 2 USB A, 2 USB C, 1 HDMI
