    It is sustainable when stupid people purchase rubbish. I wish it were not. But, we should be clear that lots and lots and lots of stupid things that are unacceptable to anyone with high standards are sustainable because of stupid people with low standards and good old fashioned ignorance. I think they are often in the majority.

    Interesting times that we live in when a person can be of ordinary intelligence but high standards and having the audacity to speak their beliefs qualifies them as an arrogant elitist or a hate-driven racist among those that have lower standards and a different view.

    Most BGA laptops only include 1 memory channel rather than 2 so you lose like 40-50% performance in applications that can scale up. 2x2133 performs the same as 1x3200 etc. They're designed to perform worse.

    Ha, Dell started first to remove 2 slots then thereafter soldered ram in the end for the Alienwares. It will probaly be the same fate for Precision models as well. Next step will be cut down to 2 slots. Maybe Samsung will help out this time as well. Just hope that they are able to push out 64GIG sticks in same way as they helped Dell when they needed 16GIG stick to stop all the complaints when the Gamer kids saw they could only get 2x8GB as max in the first gen AW BGA jokes in 2015:)

    lmao. i read the first and last page of this thread. probably some in between over the years. now that apple has come out hard with ARM architecture (though I hate apple dearly, sometimes they help set new bars, not necessarily innovation or revolution) I can only guess it's a matter of time before the market follows suit, but it could be couple years. the thing is, what will OEMs/ODMs do to screw us when everything COULD be on one board and cooled easily but do things to keep things disposable. more glue? or not on one board, but designed to be upgradeable but for ARM. imagine sockets for CPUs, GPUs and ram slots. if half the population doesn't die because of management in the next few years, I am kind of eager to see what innovations come of laptops loaded up with ARM.

    It SURE WOULD BE NICE to buy very capable ARM laptops too, but have a battery for thin and light day or the show me how many cells can be fit in this footprint.
