I have a few questions on upgrades... I understand that they might not even happen, or that they won't happen for a while, but supposing that they did:
1. How long does it typically take to upgrade, and why? (Like, based on previous upgrades how long does it take, and also do you upgrade it or does Sager upgrade it what?)
2. What components will be upgraded at the least? (i.e., if you want the cheapest upgrade, can you just do the video card and mother board?)
3. If you do just upgrade the video card and motherboard, will any components that would remain in your computer bring down the speed of the whole computer?
My question has always been why endusers can just upgrade their own laptops. I understand the proprietary nature, but I really don't understand why if a person feels qualified to upgrade a PC, they have experience working on laptops why we can't just buy the parts and do it. I'm certified to work on compaq servers laptops, and desktops..if I choose to undertake such an endeavor, I don't understand why I can't buy the parts. I've purposefully built several desknotes simply because I could by them barebones and then pick and chose the components I wanted in them.
Oh well. I know this is still a gripe that will fall on deaf ears at laptop manufacturers
