I am not entirely sure where to post this, but why does apple soldier the processor to the motherboard? I don't mind this, but is it for performance? I mean it would make fixing them a lot easier. Is it for warranty reasons? from people who love swapping processors or to make more money off of their variant models? Does anyone really know, or is it just left to guesses? I wonder this because over clockers hate it, and i know apple has requirements, but if someone wants to play with it, they should just void the warranty or something.
