Ok this question isn't really about Ubuntu but it is kinda (please tell me if I'm not allowed to post things about hardware that doesn't have allot to do with Ubuntu). I wanted to know for how long i can keep upgrading my hardware. Does it eventually just stop or can you keep going forever until you get bored of your chassis or the components don't fit. I use Ubuntu so I just wandered does the OS have anything to do with upgrades... I know that the motherboard has to be swapped after a while but i want to get a little more in depth with the concept of upgrading. Also please tell me which components rely on each other. I also know that some things cant be switched or are very hard to switch. What might be important is to know which upgrades are necessary and which ones aren't. The last thing that i know about is that it inst always the smartest thing to do compared to just buying a new laptop. Last thing, are other laptops more upgradeable than others (or at least easier to upgrade)?
QUESTIONS IN SHORT
-How long can I keep on upgrading my laptop's hardware
-Does the OS have anything to do with upgrades
-Which hardware components rely on each other and would need to be
swapped in the event that i wanted to get a new component that depended on another
-What cant be upgraded or are hard to upgrade (I'm guessing the screen, keyboard, and touch pad)
-Are other laptops more upgradeable than others
-What are smart and necessary upgrade and which ones aren't.
Any useful response will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks (thread continues on page #2 and maybe more later)
