    Well the PC folk will soon be joining this party as Intel has decided, starting with broadwell to start soldering the CPUs to the mobo, so people won't be able to build there own PC any more.

    Wrong. Intel will begin producing chips that require soldering to the mobo. They will not be doing the soldering themselves except on their own mobo/cpu combos.

    This won't stop people from building their own PCs. It will, however, stop most people from upgrading the CPU while reusing the same mobo since this will require one to first desolder the current CPU.
