    Considering the amount of misinformation that gets spread like the gospel on reddit by people claiming to know things they clearly don't, this is enlightening to hear.

    A bit of critical thinking could be helping everyone as usual on that front ;)

    You have never been forgotten. Your passion for bringing back PGA/LGA reminds me of my passion for bringing back 16:10 laptops.
    Unfortunately, I don't think we shall see 16:10 make a comeback, but socketed laptops have continued to be released by Clevo which is a good thing. I would have also loved if they also continued to support the MXM standard. I mean, right now, only 4 laptops on the market still have socketed CPUs and MXM video cards. And to think that ten years ago even the mid-range laptops had socketed processors and MXM video cards.

    But I think it's one step at a time. Socketed processors have a much broader appeal. MXM video cards don't make their value apparent immediately, but from my experience, they can seriously prologue the lifetime and usability of your laptop, much more than socketed processors. I guess that's why they were removed in the first place; they increase the laptop's price and make it last longer.

    Reddit's a good place for funny stuff and cute animal pictures, but not sure why people would get their hardware information there.

    Because it's a familiar place for a lot of people with less experience.

    I'm in my 30's and have never had a reddit account. Just felt like confessing that!

    It's not a bad place for most things, and some of the communities on there are great, it's just that consensus through votes is really nice for a lot of forum related things but not so nice in cases where the majority don't have technical knowledge and their votes outweigh those of the (fewer) people who do.

    Lol now that's a very grey haired response ;)

    Certain communities I would guess but I dont hang around those.
