Framework began with the goal to remake consumer electronics to respect people and do less harm to the planet. To enable this, we strive to expand our mission into new categories. Today, we are excited to announce that we have partnered with Google to create the Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition. We’ve taken the best parts of the Framework Laptop and merged those with the powerful simplicity of ChromeOS to create a high-performance, upgradeable, repairable, customizable Chromebook.
The Chromebook Edition is available for pre-order in the US and Canada today starting at $999 USD, with first shipments starting in early December. We’re using a batch pre-order system, with only a fully-refundable $100 deposit required at the time of pre-order. All of the replacement parts and modules that make up the Chromebook Edition are also available for waitlisting on the Marketplace today.
The Chromebook Edition leverages design from the Framework Laptop including a high resolution (2256x1504) 3:2 display, comfortable 1.5mm key-travel keyboard, and precision formed and milled aluminum housing, all while remaining extremely portable at 15.85mm thick and 1.3kg. Powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-1240P processor with 4+8 CPU cores and 30W sustained performance, you can multitask with ease on top of running heavy Chrome workloads. ChromeOS supports downloading Android™ apps from the Google Play Store, developing on Linux with Crostini, playing PC games with Steam on ChromeOS Alpha, and more.* At the same time, the Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition is our most power efficient product yet with optimizations from Google and Intel that allow for long-lasting battery life.
