How do you want your next laptop to be built?

I want my laptop to be built with:

Poll closed Aug 16, 2018.
  1. Socketed CPU and MXM GPU so I can repair or upgrade is a must (BGA is totally unacceptable)

    68.0%
  2. Replaceable MXM GPU so I can repair or upgrade is a must (a weaker BGA CPU is OK with me)

    11.0%
  3. BGA is OK with me, but I DO NOT want Max-Q (I want a full performance GPU even if it is BGA)

    14.5%
  4. BGA is fine and I want Max-Q (Performance is less important. I will sell it while under warranty)

    3.5%
  5. BGA CPU with only integrated graphics (I don't need good CPU or GPU performance)

    2.9%

    Correct...I should have said I am not aware of any computer using an LGA CPU that has the iGPU enabled. iGPU is only meant for battery life savings, so why do you want to use it with an LGA CPU based computer?

    for that reason saving battery when on the go, or using it during power outage. use it to troubleshoot dGP and still able to use computer while dGP is waiting for replacement.

    Fair enough point. And there have been LGA desktops that have access to the iGPU. Having the iGPU available can be a life saver.

    specially on that laptop can only use one type gpu (Eurocom Tornado F5 1080 Gtx), where the heatskink can accomodate only the msi 1080..

    Did I miss something? There are a lot of LGA laptops that have their iGPUs enabled, especially the ones that don't have a dGPU (like this Thinkpad). Also, wanting good battery life and modularity are not mutually exclusive. My GE40 is getting tired of waving. :rolleyes:

    @Papusan 's been on a tear today.
    That being said, if MSI got a clue and made a LGA high end non whitebook laptop (GT75VR LGA), and removed that silly 4 year old hybrid crap migrated from those wimpy 180W PSU's that sometimes died, there would be some serious competition out here. As long as the silly AC power caps didn't exist (throw a 230W on a GTX 1070 if you wish, but let it draw as much power as the system asks for).
