Re: Bye bye upgradable laptops

On my laptop I've upgraded:


Optical Drive

Graphics Card


HDD (used partition Magic on desktop to copy existing content /OS)

Replaced keyboard, battery pack case fans due to age.


1600 x 1200 ultra sharp totally matt finish zero reflection 15" screen (other screens were possible)

1.8 GHz P4 CPU (other CPUs can be fitted).

OK, perhaps it's a little large and heavy. The Mac Air is indeed an x86-64 tablet with built in keyboard. It's expensive though unless you want OS X.

I wonder how long before Apple drop OS X and only have iOS though.
