Soldering the RAM to the mainboard gives faster performance...

Surely that's why so many Ultrabooks are doing this, right?

wont come lose? or better yet, wont let you change it. and it might give a few more mm of clearance for other components. Not such much for speed, but for space.

It's done mostly for space, partially because then you have to pay the manufacturer more to upgrade the memory instead of just doing so yourself.

Soldering is cheaper than installing a memory socket. As mentioned before, it also takes up less space.
