Why aren't modular upgradeable laptops standard yet?

It's 2017. Laptops should be as upgradeable as desktops already. It's not hard to create an industry standard where you slot in and out the main parts like CPU, GPU, RAM.

Are you retarded? You can just open it up and take it out from inside.
Because computers and laptops are getting outdated. The world functions on tablets and mobile phones now. Not many households use a computer anymore... So less demand. The only people who really use a computer are offices

I have that exact card in my shit airflow case and it's literally silent, even when playing games, never goes above 60% fan
Fuck that I just put a 240mm Corsair aio on it with the Nzxt bracket. Going to replace the little 80mm fan with a noctua.

they do keep the temps in check, so why would they backfire on me? They get plenty of airflow and I even tested it with thermocouple strapped onto the VRMs, which never exceeded 80C.
Your block covers the exact same area as my heatsinks do. Chokes get airflow too so they don't need their own heatsinks.

Haven't had temp issues, but I'm absolutely anal about noise. Might consider doing it.

I will never forget my J3.

This player was legendary and still holds a cult status. I dropped it while running for the bus and it broke.

I know you will give me the audiophile meme treatment and I agree that 'audiophiles' tend to be retards who hear things that don't exist, but I swear to god, pick up any good Cowon player that has BBE and turn on the MP setting (which stands for MP3 enhancement mode) and tell me it doesn't sound good.

Unfortunately these fuckers sell their players for a fortune.
I like mine just because of the MicroSD slot and being able to play OGG. Everything else including the interface and controls are absolutely cancer.
yes it supports FLAC, its has rockbox support so just install it and away you go you have all the features you want.

Supports up to 128Gb sd cards x2.

Solidly built, sounds great for the money, I cant fault it.
I was about to buy an xduoo x2 but seems like too many people online have issues with it.

Just sucked it up and paid for a shanling m1. Hoping I like it.
I prefer streaming apps these days but tablets are too big. What's small like a phone but good for using tidal or spotify?

Will USB type C ever take off?

>micro usb shits the bed at 4 years and is flimsy garbage
Of course it is, noone is denying that.
But mini was EVEN WORSE. The early versions lasted at most for 1000 insertions, which was later fixed with a minor redesign, but wast still pretty bad.
Micro USB, on the other hand, is easier to handle improperly - some people are hamfisted enough to insert it upside down. But treated properly, it will last at least 2x longer than a mini USB of similar quality
Probably, but I think it'll take a few years before it becomes anything near commonplace.
What about thunderbolt? How does that fit in?
I didn't have a problem with mini, myself. Micro is so god awful that I would prefer to use lighting. And no, lightning is not a good port, I just wanted to stress how fucking horrid Micro is. It never should have been adopted.

Is the Purism Librem a meme or what? Why do I have to spend so much fucking $$$ to get a supposedly secure computer?

Hey gentopan, I need to enable both dnssec and dnscrypt on my router but once I download dnsmasq-full i lose access to the interwebz.
I tried pasting this part from the old dhcp file into the new one generated after I get the dnsmasqfull package:
option leasefile '/tmp/dhcp.leases'
option resolvfile '/etc/resolv-crypt.conf'
# option noresolv 1
list server ''
list server ''
list server ''
list server '/pool.ntp.org/'

But no luck so far. Can someone just show me his dhcp file so I can see what am I doing wrong? Oh and yes the resolvers I'm using support dnssec. Ty.
