Even if they also include a slot, how are you supposed to match pairs if the rest of it is permanently mounted?
I watched a video for my laptop and there are a bunch of parts that look really flimsy so that has me worried. I'll probably do it anyways in 2 years along with an SSD just because, and if it dies then I wont care.
I love my Dell T3500 workstation, you can swap any of the boards, HD's etc. without a single tool.
