Welcome! Please introduce yourself

Hello, I am a new nurse practitioner, former 13 year ICU nurse. Have worked tech jobs prior to healthcare and still dabble in tech stuff and music, mainly guitar, as hobbies. Was looking to replace my aging surface pro 5th gen. Really was sold on the serviceable aspect of the framework, the Linux support, the openness and great information I’ve been reading about. Just ordered today, and looking forward to getting my laptop soon!

Hello. I’m a PhD student in Biostatistics. I’ve been meaning to upgrade my laptop for while and when I saw the expedited delivery for December I decided to fork up the money for the professional, non-DIY version. Currently running Windows 11 while I decide which distro I want to install but will probably dual boot EndeavorOS (with i3wm). Wonderful product and completely worth the money.

Hello - power systems engineer here in Northern California. This is my first time owning a premium laptop that you can actually fix! Excited to be part of the community. I think Framework has a great idea and I’m excited to see what they come out with next.

Hello. I`ve already posted here several times but just found the welcome wagon lol.
I install and service eye-related medical equipment throughout the Midwest and some South.
My 5 yr old Pentium-powered Dell had seen better days. I also own a Surface Go for travel but not real happy with it. Then I bought a Yoga 6 like the day before I found Framework on the web. The Yoga had better specs on paper but I loved the Framework design so I really struggled. Finally I opted for the Framework and no looking back. So glad I did! Took it apart second day just because “I can”.
Look forward to this community “having my back” when in need, and hopefully I can bring some assistance along the way.

Hi! I’m a college psychology professor. I first learned about Framework last year in a video from Adam Savage’s Tested; I was really excited by the promise of being able to upgrade as needed to have a functional laptop for much longer than the Dells I’ve often owned. Just ordered today and excited to try it out.

Plus when we’re able to get upgraded mainboards I have ideas for this original one, which is something no other laptop has been able to offer, ever

Hello World! (heh… helloworld, funny) My name is Jason and I am a pastery chef. As a hobby I build computers. I was recently perusing the interwebs and came across an advert for an awsome diy laptop. I like to tinker so when I read the specs on the framework I was literally blown away! Now, I can hardly wait to get one! such a reasonable price too! When I got the full description of this laptops capabilities I felt like a kid and it was Christmas and my Birthday all in one! Now I cant wait to get one!

Hello, my name is Webb and I am from Washington, DC. As for PC’s and electronics I am a Linux/Arduino/Raspberry Pi user and my everyday machine for work and home use is a modded ThinkPad t440p (i7 4712, 16GB, 2x 500GB SSDs with 1080p IPS display). I enjoy tweaking and modifying my machines just as much as I enjoy using them for everyday workplace productivity.

My 13-year-old son told me about Framework, and I think the product is a perfect match for my needs and interests. It is also easier to lug around daily than an older ThinkPad.

I ordered an i5 DIY edition and have separately ordered the RAM and SSD. I plan on using Debian Linux and a Windows 10 VirtualBox guest os for my work-related Windows needs (proprietary Windows-based software). I hope to connect the laptop to an external 21:9 display to look at architectural plans and provide material solutions for custom millwork, windows and doors.

I am really looking forward to using the laptop everyday, and being a contributing member of the Framework community!

Hello,
My name is Michel, I am a developer, based in Brooklyn, New York. I went from Linux to Mac and now back to Linux. I like the idea of having a computer that I can upgrade and fix. I have ordered a DIY Framework and am waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime, I am reading the posts with great interest.

And speaking of Switzerland, I really hope that one day I will be able to buy such a beautiful framework notebook.
