Apple Watch: Wait a minute! This puny wrist-puter costs 17 GRAND?!


Re: Bye bye upgradable laptops

But they are cheap. Cheaper to produce that is. So profit margins are hiked twice over: once, given the high price and again, by saving production costs.

Soldering things straight to the board also increases reliability and makes them thinner and lighter, which apparently is what everybody wants.

I don't have to cart a laptop around anywhere so it's not much of a selling point for me, although having said that I would rather sit around with that thing on my lap than our old Dell!
