Framework, the popular maker of customizable, modular and upgradable laptops has announced a big upgrade for the Framework Laptop 13 across both Intel and AMD models.

The newest version of Framework Laptop 13 comes with the latest Intel Core Ultra Series 1 processors, an optional 13.5" 2880x1920 120 Hz display on both Intel and AMD systems, a new webcam with 9.2MP image sensor, and configurations designed for businesses and professionals with a 3-year warranty.

Pre-orders are open now with shipping starting in August for all 14 countries they're currently in, and they're launching in Sweden, Finland, and Denmark this June.

On top of that the AMD Ryzen 7040 Series Framework Laptop 13 has seen a permanent price reduction, and it also has the new 2.8k display and webcam along with the high-capacity 61Wh battery.

Nice to see Linux repeatedly get mentioned too, as they said: "Our focus this year is on refining the end-to-end experience for both current and new customers, making this the ideal laptop for Linux in addition to Windows, and enabling businesses to enter the world of repairable, customizable computing".

Speaking about the newer display they also said "Even better, that resolution allows for a streamlined experience in Linux through 2:1 display scaling." and for those of you who don't want a Windows logo on your keyboard they additionally said "We have one last bit of good news for Linux users too: you can now configure an English International keyboard with a “super” key instead of the logo from an OS you aren’t using.".

Of course, since it's Framework and their laptops are modular, you don't need to buy an entire new laptop. All the new parts will be up on the Framework Marketplace for you to pick up and slot into your existing Framework unit.

All the details in the blog post.

One day I will get my hands on the DIY edition to build it myself, that's the dream anyway.

I'd love to get the AMD version one day. It's a great idea having interchangeable components.

Me, I want discreet graphics cards. For privacy; can't be too careful.

I'm waiting for a touch-screen - with a pressure-sensitive stylus, preferably.

Your graphic card knows everything you've ever displayed on your screen. It's like that new "Recall" AI feature in Windows 11, but on steroids. We should all get rid of our GPUs !

You mean the Framework 16? I don't think they’ll made a 13" with a discrete card.
