It's quite sensible actually, how many people you know will upgrade the RAM in their laptops?
By soldering, they save space and weight.

In my close to 10yrs++ of laptop usage from XP until today's Win10, I encountered twice BSOD due to RAM damage becos of heat?
I wonder by soldering onto the system MB... how durable can it be?

Apple laptops all soldered long time ago, never had any problem. It's probably better because you have a secure connection.

I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Oredi sibeh dulan that batteries are not swappable and fixed at certain size that affects usable worktime as well as battery repairability...
RAM durability is still debatable as the number of folks facing bootup issues due to RAM damage is relatively small.
If SSD tio fixed/attached like those netbooks/tablets, it'll be disastrous! As u know, most of the time the updates to OS occupies lots of space.
