Wait, so your card got charged before you even bought it? :joy:

Fedex shows an ETA of Friday. But it has also been showing “Arrived at FedEx location” at Keasbey, NJ with no movement since yesterday … so I am a bit skeptical.

@Dev ha! They had one waiting for me :wink: But my bad I meant October is when I was charged. I fear I have to look at all my other posts now to correct them.

My Quick Review after A Day

Getting a Framework laptop is like getting married. Compromises have to be made. But it’s wonderful and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Charged and preparing to ship on the 14th and crickets since. Anyone else have a similar situation?

For reference I got mid-tier i7 with bring own ram and ssd.

I ordered on September 14 and have not heard anything.

I ordered the non-DIY i5 model, anyone who ordered the non-DIY model heard anything yet?

Hello there. I am an anxious new customer of the Framework laptop. I ordered on September 16th, the DIY i5 model with AX 210 Non Vpro Wifi, power adapter, 2x USB C, 1x USB A, and 1x HDMI. I already have an Intel 665p 1TB SSD and some generic Samsung 2x8GB DDR4 3200 Sticks awaiting the rest of the computer.

I plan to venture forth into the world of Arch Linux for the first time with this computer.

As for shipping, I have yet to receive a shipping confirmation, or the remaining amount due taken out of my payment method yet. As far as I have noticed from the prior posts, it looks like the i5 models are a bit behind compared to the i7 models… Maybe I should have bought an i7 unit after all. :frowning:

My usual streaming content is programming and data science in R, although I’ve also had a recent seasonal kick of carving pumpkins on stream :jack_o_lantern:

I bought an i5 on the same day too, and my status exactly the same. So I think you’re absolutely right about the i5 units just being behind.

I also ordered the same model on the same day - also have the same status.

Looks like tomorrow is the big day! I shipped it to work so no one steals it off my front porch.

Quick question that I never thought of until someone here pointed it out to me:
I’m getting the DIY 1165G7 and I paired that with an AX210 vpro WiFi card. I admit to not knowing anything regarding WiFi cards and I just selected it with my order, and I was asked here if the vpro would even pair with the 1165G7, but admittedly I have no clue. A quick google search said that all vpro needed to funciton was a core 2 processor and the 1165G7 is a quad-core, so I believe that means I’m good?

Would anyone care to educate me?

I think - someone will correct me if I’m wrong I’m sure - that in order to use vPro you need a CPU that also supports vPro like the Core i7-1185G7 that Framework offers as an option. Otherwise you can’t use vPro.

My guess is that the AX210 vPro will function just as a regular AX210 non-vPro if you don’t pair it with a vPro CPU.

So you should be fine, you just overpaid a bit for a feature you can’t use. :slightly_smiling_face:

Am I still on time to watch?

Yup! Precisely. It will work anyway but without any vPro enhancement.

Got my Framework delivered today! Have spent the last several hours getting it all set up. I have pretty much everything working in Windows on one partition, and struggling through getting Linux Mint to see the wifi card on the other partition. Getting through it! Already an excellent learning experience. :smiley:

My final timeline was:
Sep. 9: Ordered DIY i5 with no RAM and no SSD; with AC Adapter and wifi
Oct. 4: Preparing to ship batch
Oct. 12: Preparing to ship order
Oct. 18: Your order shipped!
Oct. 20: Estimated delivery date from FedEx to Massachusetts
Oct. 21: Delivery!
