Thank you for joining the Processors community.
Regarding your questions the best place to get the accurate answers is he computer manufacturer of any specific laptop, we make processors intended to be used on different platforms this according to the market but it's up to the computer manufacturer to make the decision if that specific model will include a solder processor. I believe this will depend on the market that they are trying to reach, remember that there are several types of architectures for computers and maybe the computer manufacturer is not interested in their users maintaining their own laptops; however, I am not able to confirm this. So, if you are interested in getting more information on an specific model try to reach their support for more information.
