The fact is, the VAST majority of home users don't upgrade their CPU, or the motherboard, or the RAM, or the hard drive. In fact, they don't upgrade ANYTHING; they buy a new machine and throw the old one away.

In that environment, sockets for CPUs are an expensive luxury; money spent for an option nobody uses, or wants. I expect that we'll eventually start seeing motherboards configured with non-upgradable RAM as well, and for the same reasons.

Upgrade options for servers makes sense. For desktops, not so much, and ESPECIALLY not for tablets and netbooks.
