Why do you use on-board memory?

On-board memory has several advantages over SODIMM's such as:

  • 5.8mm thinner
  • Smaller Footprint
  • Better Heat Dissipation
  • Lower failure rate
  • Lower Price

On-board memory has a field failure rate of 0.03% over a 10 year period, so the advantages far outway the capability to replace it.

In the case of the LabTop Mk IV, using on-board memory allowed it to be small, thin and have dual-channel memory.
