Oooh framework! I'm thinking if I get a new laptop I'm getting one from there

Reading about that one now... Apparently their local/regional webshop isn't up yet, so ordering replacements or upgrades isn't possible yet over here
Looks damned interesting though, do they offer touchscreens?
 
1:30 PM
From memory yes? But haven't looked it up
Loooooks like no

Though to be fair
Considering the entire idea behind the Framework Laptop is to have everything replaceable by the end user
it might not be a big stretch for them to add a touchscreen option later on

Deeepeeends.
If they added extra wires so the info can be transfered between screen and mainboard
Because I imagine that's more info then can normally be transfered in the random-data-channels of the protocol

I think generally speaking you can send the touch signals over the eDP connection, but I'm not sure that still works with higher resolution displays that require more bandwidth 🤔
(or rather, I assume it doesn't work :P)

I've not opened up this laptop (Dell l7400 with touchscreen) as it's a work device, but I imagine there'll probably be two separate cables coming out of the screen section, one of which connects as a peripheral device (i.e. the touchscreen)
@Nzall It might also never become available... I really like touchscreens during travel, would like to make sure whichever device I get has that out of the box :)

Actually, USB-C can carry everything so the touch/screen unit probably internally connects as that

Yeah someone has made a framework 11th gen tablet instructables.com/member/whatthefilament
And you might be able to grab an 11th gen board on ebay idk
Since the 12th gen kit is out
Mileage may vary, I know they're looking at rolling out shipping to other countries
