Since there was a decent bit of interest, here's a update.

I opened up the case with the provided multi-tool (T6/phillips reversible bit with a spudger at the other end). The screws on the case are captive, which is great no worries about losing one. 1 of the 5 screws wasn't perfectly aligned but posed no issues, build is solid. The spudger allows the keyboard to be lifted (top view under keyboard shown). The QR codes link to documentation (which has a lot of photos).


@fedops and @jx0, I shared more info on the framework laptop. Happy to answer questions.

@shom that's great, thank you very much. Looks like a quality bit of kit. Be interested to hear how you like it after having worked with it for a while. Is that going to be your daily driver?

@fedops I got the laptop because I am a fan of the business model/philosophy and wanted to support it. I'm pleasantly surprised by how good it all actually is, especially for a first generation batch 3 product. Now I kind of wish I had gone for the i7 to replace my daily driver (xps 13 2-in-1 i7 1065G7). I might sell both to upgrade to a i7. Good problem to have!

@shom yes! 😁 For once a product that's actually better than anticipated...
