Can iFixit upgrade my 'non-upgradable' hardware for me?
There are more and more devices with 'non-upgradable' components: while hardware gets more and more tightly integrated, we see more often than not CPU and RAM soldered onto motherboard rather than socketed, and hard/solid-state drive hidden under the lid rather than user-accessible door.
This is an obstacle to upgrade, however it's not an insurmountable one, is it? Computer enthusiasts have a history of doing crazy things to their computers, after all. For me, the 'aha' moment when I realized that 'non-upgradable' stuff might be not *that* 'non-upgradable', after all, when an acquaintance of mine have replaced a battery in his old *iPod Touch* in a generic service center; a thing I thought of as impossible.
Does iFixit offer upgrade services to upgrade 'non-upgradable' components? If someone at all does, I imagine that should be iFixit.
If iFixit doesn't, then do you by chance know of a good place that does?
Is this a good question?
