Today, the Framework Laptop is available for pre-ordering in Australia, with shipments starting in October. Launching in Australia continues our global expansion as we work to reach as much of the world as possible with our mission to remake consumer electronics. We now have ordering open in: Australia, US, Canada, Ireland, Austria, Netherlands, UK, Germany, and France.
To place your pre-order, you only need to put down a $100 fully-refundable deposit. The configurations available in Australia remain the same, with three pre-built options with Windows 11 and the Framework Laptop DIY Edition that can be configured with up to 4TB of storage and 64GB of memory, and no OS pre-loaded so that you can bring your favorite one. We’ll be opening up the Framework Marketplace in Australia around the time laptop shipments begin. In the meantime, you can sign up to get notified when Marketplace items come into stock.
If you’re outside of the regions we currently support, you can help us prioritize our international rollout by registering your interest on our locales page. We received a huge number of requests to expand into Australia, which emphasized the importance of opening up ordering there.
The 11th Gen Intel Core Mainboard Price Drop
Since Mainboards with 12th Gen Intel Core processors are now available in the Marketplace, we have decreased the price further for all remaining inventory of Mainboards with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, with total discounts of up to 33%.
If you’re looking for inspiration on how to use a Mainboard, either from the Marketplace or left over after a Framework Laptop upgrade, we’ve seen some incredible work coming out of the community over the last few weeks.
Framework user whatthefilament used his Mainboard to make an awesome tablet that has garnered a lot of interest from other members of the DIY community. Check out his feature in PC Gamer. You can pick up whatthefilament’s design files, and the open source reference designs we’ve released on GitHub.
