You can get the Framework in three different models that start at around $1,000 and go up to $2,000.

Future concerns about laptops with replaceable parts

The idea of laptop computers that are easy to repair and replace is very beautiful and convenient and may save a lot of money and electronic waste.

But this idea depends on the companies' continued support for it, as the company may disappear after some time and thus the replaceable computer parts will disappear.

This is especially important in our case with the Framework laptop because the company is still young and this is its first year.

Companies can avoid this risk by offering a set of parts that can be replaced in any computer without relying on its brand or design by the company itself.
