That would be a deal-killer for me. I don't like it, but I'll disassemble a laptop to change a drive or cooling fan. I expect to be able to add RAM fairly easily and don't like it if the keyboard has to come off to do it. Having soldered-on RAM is a stunt Compaq used to pull and I won't stand for it. Even if they also include a slot, how are you supposed to match pairs if the rest of it is permanently mounted?
