That's an incorrect answer actually. Not all laptop cpu's are soldered in and most of them are up gradable . That being said the mac book pro retina is soldered in. However you can upgrade the ssd. Ive also heard that if you are still under warranty you can purchase upgrades through apple .
If you would like help upgrading , feel free to contact me at Steven.firstname.lastname@example.org
@ mac It is relevant to the problem as the user was asking about a possible upgrade.
Knowing that not ALL CPU's are soldered in may help them in their decision.
I was just quoting your earlier comment and clarifying. If you don't understand the importance of giving clear information then the problem is with you and not with me .
Possibly misleading the end user is simply incompetent and only troubling to those involved. Any professional would agree that being precise and exact when you give advice is a must.
@Dan So once again not ALL laptops have soldered in CPU's in fact most of them don't. Intel isn't the only one out their also that is not the case with the pin gate arrays (PGA),
Perhaps your time would be better spent learning how to deal with end users and bettering your relationships with others instead of arguing over someone else's statement that had nothing to do with you in the first place.
Now if you had listed some other models that have soldered CPU's or laptops that have upgrade potential that would have been helpful.
Throwing a few models that are soldered isn't really relvent in the context applied nor is it making you sound any smarter.
