Submission + - Intel to use soldered CPUs; end of PC building? (zdnet.com)

Dystopian Rebel writes: ZDNET reported that Intel will sell the next-generation Broadwell CPUs as a ball grid array (BGA) rather than an land grid array (LGA) package. In short, Broadwell CPUs will be soldered onto the circuit board. The article mentions that Apple now has RAM soldered onto the mainboard of some PC products. Is this the end of hobbyist PC building and upgrading? Will AMD find new support from hobbyists and OEM builders?
