  • Framework's new 16" laptop - dubbed reasonably enough the Framework Laptop 16 - is now available for pre-order. (The Verge)

    If you want one you'll be waiting a while because the first five production batches sold out in the first day.

    It comes with a Ryzen 7840HS or 7940HS CPU, up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM (and probably 96GB, but that depends on BIOS support), up to 6TB of SSD (10TB if you install your own), and optional Radeon 7700S graphics with 8GB of VRAM.

    The screen is a solid all-rounder: 2560x1600, 165Hz, 100% DCI-P3 colour, and 500 nits brightness. The CPU isn't high-end - it has eight cores while AMD now offers 16 core laptop chips - but should be plenty for most users.

    And the optional dedicated GPU is truly optional: It works without it, you can add it later if you want, you can remove it, and you can upgrade it later on. There's a plan for a storage module with two more M.2 slots to go in that expansion bay if you don't need the advanced graphics.

    It also has six little I/O modules, supporting a choice of USB-C, USB-A, DisplayPort, HDMI, microSD, 2.5Gb Ethernet, storage modules up to 1TB, and/or a headphone jack. Only three of the module bays support external video, so you can't put anything anywhere, but it is very flexible.

    The keyboard is also modular. The default keyboard lacks the Four Essential Keys, but you can add a numeric keypad or a 24 key macropad. Or you can get both and swap between them on a whim. The keyboard modules are programmable and each has an embedded RP2040 - the chip in the Raspberry Pi Pico.

    And everything is designed to be user-replaceable with just a screwdriver and some patience.

    It's not cheap, but neither is the MacBook Pro, its polar opposite in terms of serviceability.
