Why not make a motherboard the average computer user can replace quickly. Put all the slots on a motherboard onto one side of the board so that it can be removed as easily as a removable harddrive. That would allow the option to replace the motherboard without having to fiddle with covers, screws, and self locking slots. Upgrades or repairs to the old motherboard can be done while a temporary or latest motherboard is put in it's place.
How about a sliding slot for the processor as well?
The way we treat motherboards hasn't changed for too many years.
I guess I am not understanding what is so hard about changing a board now.....I thought they were fairly fast and easy? I can swap a board out complete in about 30 minutes. How could you make a processor any easier to change, drop it straight in and push a tiny little lever down?
The problem/time is the software and programs, not the board.
