Plenty of them are socketed, depends on your platform.

If it was otherwise I wouldve read about how much further people were able to push the OC on the m11x, but as even that is locked in the bios, you can only get 1.7Ghz, but im sure there are ways around the BIOS

what you said was completely irrelevant to what you had quoted. seriously.

I had ninja'ed him saying the same thing about the m11x's cpu being soldered on, so what does what you had to say contribute to any which way or form to the OP?

Sure, some are socketed, but that has no relevance here, as were speaking specifically about the m11x, the su7300 model to be exact.

What you're saying is also completely irrelevant to his point.

The SSD will have to be a 2.5", right?

Also, will replacing the hard drive with an SSD void the warranty?

LOL beers are you confused or something? The C2D and the i5/i7 in the M11x are all SOLDERED on. Please get that and stop arguing, you saying they are not just because of other "platforms" IS COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT. I have worked with all current Dell Alienware offerings so I know what I'm talking about. Period. Please check my guide in my sig, there is your proof.

The SSD is 2.5" and replacing it with your own will not void warranty. Save your stock drive as an external backup or save it in a safe spot in case you have to warranty your system. They will want stock parts back most likely.

Just so everyone knows the following will not void warranty on the M11x. Also note that any aftermarket parts used will not the covered and also damages from said parts will also not be covered:

-RAM
-HDD
-WiFi Mini Card

The following WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY:

-Opening any part of the M11x other than the service panel and user serviceable areas.
-Replacing the battery with a non Dell battery (don't know why anyone would want to but the question comes up...)
