A regular consumer does not have the engineering or technician skills to do micro-soldering. For regular consumers soldering RAM onto a computer motherboard is risky, because they can damage the device, it voids the warranty. "Modern Standy" as you call it is a flawed design design. It is really just part of planned obsolescence, which is a DESIGN FLAW. It screws consumers. What kind of consumer-ignorant profit-hungry @%^$$@$ product manager would make that product design? Consumers have to boycott such product manufacturers. It creates more eWaste, and !#^&@! off consumers.
