Laptops are becoming less and less repairable and upgradeable, but there’s one laptop manufacturer that’s going in the exact opposite direction: Framework. The company has been offering laptops for a while, but now it’s making a Chromebook, with the exact same features that make Framework laptops great.
At its core, the Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition is the same Framework Laptop that you can currently get with Windows 11. It has the same specs and feature set. The big difference, then, is that it runs ChromeOS instead of Windows 11, something made possible by a new partnership with Google. However, apart from the modified keyboard layout and the Chrome logo on the back, there is nothing to indicate that this is a Chromebook.
As for the actual specs, we’ve got an Intel Core i5-1240P and a 2256×1504 3:2 display. It also has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of NVMe storage, albeit in classic Framework style, which can be customized, up to 64 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. could be a little bit Overkill for a Chromebook, but if you want to do it, you can. That’s the beauty of these computers.
Like other Framework laptops, this one too is modular. You can add ports as expansion cards, such as USB-C, USB-A, microSD, Ethernet, or HDMI/DisplayPort. You can even customize the laptop screen bezel to your liking.
This green laptop will set you back $1,000, so it might not be exactly cheap. But given how cool it is, it might be worth checking out. You can check it out on the Framework website for more information.
