I don't really see the point in this if you can only upgrade CPU, RAM and HDD/SSD. I could do this on my current laptop if I wanted. Might not be as convenient, but it's not exactly rocket science! I think their new version would have to incorporate upgradable gfx for this idea to really take off. Nice review though, as always.

Er, hot. I didn't record any actual temps but it was certainly pretty toasty.

I Agree with Trevor. This is more of a barebones laptop rather than DIY... Most laptops the hard drive and memory are upgraded in the same way. Even the CPU upgrade is not so different. They only real difference is the laptop doesn't come with HDD, memory and cpu.

While I mostly agree, upgrading the CPU on most laptops is not a trivial matter. Then again it is probably the part you're least likely to replace, DIY or not.
