Hi Randy,With the exception of the Framework Laptop which has a modular construction and meant to be user configured etc... laptops aren't really fiddled with. The majority have proprietary parts with the storage and memory being about the only exceptions. Laptops/notebooks are designed to be disposable which is what's wrong with that market. A standard desktop/tower is the opposite like what I was talking about upgrading and certainly much easier than a laptop. About every 2-3 years, I'll upgrade something in the ones I have at work and at home.
Of course, I'm probably an exception since I've been doing this professionally since the late 80's and have owned my own business since 2001. Since my home system isn't as critical as my work system, I often use it to test out new product so it's usually also upgraded with newer parts before I do the same with the work PC. This time, I'm having to be a bit frugal due to the pandemic... and I'm handing down the parts from my home system to the work computer instead of buying new for the work PC. My work system doesn't need much power, so using older components isn't an issue. I also game a little ( very little, also stream some ) on the home computer, so newer parts are better used there.
Had my new refrigerator delivered today, and lets just say, either they will be bringing me another one, OR... I will be getting a HELLA discount on this one lol. Waiting on a call back.
