Manufacturing starts on the new Framework Laptop in Taiwan

Have you not seen

Great that manufacturing starts in Taiwan. When are you planning to start shipping to Australia? It’s been almost a year and there is no ETA or seriousness in addressing whether you plan to take Australians seriously.

There are a few schools that signed up to reducing plastics in oceans. They’re keen on laptops like Framework . They’ll bulk order if you want.

But again there is literally nothing being addressed for Australians.

Hi Jimmy and welcoem to the forum

:rofl: Not to wind you up but there are lots of ‘nations’ etc. that Framework don’t have the infrastructure to work in, so why take Australians more seriously that say Taiwanesse or many Europen countries.

I’m sure given it’s business they are doing what they can to make a profit and get their product out to the whole world it’s going to take time and it’s their time to take :frowning:

Don’t forget if you want a bulk order you could arrnage via someone or a business in the US or the EU or the UK, but you will have to take a lot more responsibilty if things go wrong.

It’s a nice computer, as far as I am concerned, others disagree. You may be better of waiting for some glitches to be ironed out.

I would not give it 100% pass or recomend it. I would mention it and say it’s the best I every had but I’m doing this for the ride I could use any computer to do what I want and I’m not a believer in sustainability etc. I like the modular idea, the expansion ports, but I don’t really use them much.

Two USB C for power > It’s nice to be able to decide which side to have the cable comming out
One 256 memory extension
One slot for and SD card but the SD card doesn’t go all the way in so it’s only a temporary use and very rare. Good job I got the 256 as I had intended having an SD card permanently onboard.

AH! the pains of having money to buy consumer goods and then taking responsibility for my descions.

But back to Australia. OK so you are telling forum users you are unhappy ?? Have you emailed Framework ??

HI and welcome to the forum.

Nice short post, almost too short, but I just about totally agree with someone, which is very unusual :slight_smile:

Not sure exactly when they will ship, but I’m in the first batch for the 12th Gen, and I just got the ‘we are preparing to ship’ email earlier.


I’m in Taiwan and I am unable to buy it. It’s so common for things built here to not be made available for sale here. Yet I know there is a market for it.

What can be done about this general trend?
