    It will be great if you can customise your iPhone , iPod or and iPad like a Mac Pro changing the graphics card, CPU , or maybe change colors of the phone like Moto. And you could do this on the website this will be a great idea IMO

    What would be great is having descriptive thread titles.

    U don't know what you are asking.

    Even desktops they don't let you change CPU. GPU, memory, some upgrades OK, but it only takes u so far, before you have to change the whole box.

    This concept is been around u know... There were computers that everything are on plug-in cards, including the CPU, so theoretically u can change everything. The "chassis" is just a bus for everything to he plugged in. Problem is, after awhile, the BUS is no longer sufficient it no longer provided the bandwidth for the upgraded components, so again, start from scratch.

    Sorry to burst your genius idea.

    it will be fairly expensive, cause you have to change all the supply chain and the way they build things... now they are building in a well known chain, with each station doing always the same thing.
    Impossible to do what you say with the same costs. If you want to spend a 1000 for a 16gb iphone maybe ok, but I don't.... it is like nike id shoes.... would you wait 5 weeks for your custom iPhone? personally I wouldn't

    In your statement, is "they", Apple? AFAIK Mac Pros are fully upgradable, to a point. Past that point they technically are too, but they are considered a "hackintosh" simply because the hardware is not officially supported by Apple anymore. Where it becaomes impossible is when you have integrated graphics cards, soldered ram and cpu, which is common on laptops and, more importantly, phones. Upgrading a phone would be cool, but it would require a great deal more space (read: phones would be much bigger) and could come up with a plethora of issues, not the least of which is tech support from the OEM, be that Apple or anyone else.

    Yeah, no... people don't have the slightest clue in general what they want.
