That used to be true. Now more and more is comming off of the board and becoming all add-on cards.

Like I said, I don't know much about laptops, so I wasn't sure.
But fortunately, you guys do so it's OK.

MoBos must be more expensive for laptops compared to desktops yes? My logic is because they are all different and not standardized, therefore not producing as many. My logic may be flawed though.

That depends. Are you talking about prebuilt notebooks?

No, I'm talking about buying or replacing one. As I say, might be flawed logic.

nah, you're right. Memory serve's me right, HP's non-return cost for a motherboard in my laptop is about $500. Next time I have to order one, I'll take a screenshot.

Although I've never done it, I would agree with this logic. Some people are die hard Intel and other AMD. Therefore, pick your processor first.
