    Nope, always expensive.

    Back when I was holding out hope for a 100% modular laptop platform, it seemed like it might be a possibility, but now I'm just happy to get the CPU/GPU socketed.

    That has its plus points and negative points though, partly the homogenisation of the market.

    True, though I would think only at the top end. And it might end up making some things more expensive to compensate for a drop in entire unit sales.

    The other compromise is size and a lack of focus of design (ie knowing exactly what power everything consumes lets you design accordingly).

    Size for sure, I would think cooling and to a lesser extent power could be solved as part of the modularity, the GPU module itself would have its own cooling integrated, and different power adapters would be available, possibly as part of module packages to account for additional draw, sort of like how some of the bigger models had a splitter and extra adapter but the same plug depending on what GPU was in them.

    Yeah but you know someone will upgrade the gpu and just leave the psu as is and say it's broken ;)

    A risk of modular design is that someone will come up with a combination that doesn't work. Could be partly solved by including the PSU as part of the upgrade, but I get where you're coming from.

    Definitely can see that happening. Sellers should take the same approach they do with desktops in that regard no? I don't know why laptop users get treated like imbeciles all the time?? but I'm going to go out on a limb and say you've had your fair share of them.
