Biometrics on Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition

As an owner of a ca 2015 Google Pixelbook that is VERY much on its last legs, I’m very excited to order my Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition just now. The order form didn’t offer a biometric option BUT the images of the device seem to include a fingerprint reader in the upper RH corner. Will the device include one? If not, can I order the $29 Fingerprint Reader Kit to add this function? Thanks!!

No, due to hardware limitations.


As a long-time Chromebook user, biometric login is extremely important to me.

Please find a way to get around the “hardware limitations” and add what is essentially the only item keeping this from being the best Chromebook ever – a fingerprint reader.
