Framework’s modular laptop was an instant hit when it launched in 2021, earning praise from iFixit and the Right to Repair community at large. Now, Framework continues its promise of modularity with a second generation laptop and, more importantly, an upgrade path for first generation customers.

The new Framework laptop offers a handful of improvements over its predecessor, with a 12th Gen Intel Core CPU (i5 or i7), a more efficient battery, and a much sturdier top cover (the last version was too flimsy ). Other specs, including the 13.5-inch screen, keyboard, and touchpad, remain unchanged.

Yes, there isn’t a enormous difference between first and second generation Framework laptops. But that’s the point: the new Framework laptop still works with all the modular parts on the Framework website, and it’s incredibly easy to take apart for repair.

And more importantly, the pieces of the new Framework laptop fit within last year’s model. If you bought your first Framework laptop, you can order an upgrade kit (starting at $538) to get a 12th Gen Intel Core CPU and the sturdier top cover. Why don’t all laptops do this?

Please note that if you replace the 1st generation Framework motherboard, you can use the old motherboard as a stand-alone computer. All you need is some extra RAM and a USB-C power adapter.

The new Framework laptop starts at $1,050 and comes pre-assembled. Framework will sell upgrade kits (along with individual motherboards and top covers) for its first-gen laptops in the coming months.
