Like the regular Framework Laptop, which has been announced to be powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel Core P-series processors back in May, the Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition is totally configurable too.

The laptop has four user-selectable Expansion slots which you can configure with 4 or more Expansion Cards with I/Os ranging from USB-C and USB-A ports to HDMI to card reader – the choice is yours. A 3.5mm combo headphone jack comes as standard, btw.

You may ask. How is it that it has 4 Expansion slots but you can configure it with more than 4 Expansion Cards? Well, it can accept 4 at any one time, so there is swapping of Expansion Cards involved if you have more than 4.
