I was in line for Batch 1. Noticed that the 7940HS is almost the same. Went back - am in Batch 2 for ab7840HS now. And only than heard that undervolting might be an option and kinda regret it now. So I selfishly wish for no support to keep buyers remorse at bay.
Looks like Batch 2 is going to be shortly after Chinese New Year is over!!!
The first Framework Laptop 16’s are now in customers’ hands, with more Batch 1 units in transit to those who have received shipment notices. Both our factory and our fulfillment warehouse are now on Lunar New Year holiday, so the next set of units will ship and production will resume on February 15th in Taiwan. That will include the remaining Batch 1 orders along with the first Batch 2 systems. We’ll remain in continuous production from there, with most of our total factory capacity allocated to Framework Laptop 16 manufacturing.
I love seeing that most of their capacity is allocated to FW16. Hopefully they’re not ignoring their 13 customers…but that’s great. Also, with the first batch 2 systems going out shortly after CNY that gives me hope they have a one week cadence between batches…
