What is an Expansion Card?

Framework Expansion Cards allow you to customize the ports and functionality of the Framework Laptop. Unlike other notebooks that require adapters and dongles to get to the ports you need, you can select the ones you want at order time and change them whenever you’d like.

The Framework Laptop supports four simultaneous Expansion Cards, with two on each side. You can select any combination of up to four USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, MicroSD, 1 TB storage, or 250 GB storage cards. Expansion Cards are hot swappable; simply slide and click them into your Framework Laptop with no tools needed.
