I'd consider one of these for a small home server, but unfortunately that Cooler Master case isn't particularly good.

This is one thing that interests me about Framework...

If you're willing to run a couple of generations behind, then ongoing cheap upgrades to your laptop could be a thing!

It remains to be seen if they can keep this going for a string of several generations and if they will offer more variety on the 16" side.

Yep my thought exactly, otherwise I'd be already buying this :classic_laugh:

It looked nice on the surface, but once I started counting all the "extra parts" that I'd need to convert the mobo+case into a usable solution - it did not make that much sense anymore... hopefully they improve this over time.

may do a DIY case via 3D printing? wouldnt surprise me if there was an active community coming up with new ideas in that regard 🙂

 

in any case (pun intended), good to see that this is a win win, both for the users in terms of upgradeability and for framework being able to offer previous gen parts for a wide variety of use cases.
