Tools Featured in this Teardown
Framework announced a 13” laptop designed from the ground up with repair and modularity in mind. We’ve been anxiously awaiting this thing, and it’s finally here: the Framework Laptop. Surely its top-tier repairability comes at a cost? Let’s tear it down and find out!
- Every important component in the laptop is easy to access and replace.
- Inside the laptop, most components are helpfully labeled to help orient and guide the fixer.
- The Framework Laptop repair guides are free and easily accessible, and Framework is already selling spare parts right on their website.
- External ports on the laptop are modular, but the actual USB-C sockets they plug into are soldered to the main board, complicating a potential port replacement.
