    Motherboard question

    What makes a motherboard a laptop motherboard? Does it have to come from a laptop? Or does a board with a mobile CPU slot and components on both sides qualify? See the photos. I believe these may have come from something like an Apple IMac.

    A Laptop motherboard is indeed, a motherboard from a laptop. For our grading purposes, apple, like other boards would go as small, large socket low grade, large socket or laptop. Hopefully this answers your question.

    Agree with ewasted about the various all-in-one computer motherboards. Apart from laptops we buy notebook motherboards and many tablet boards as laptop motherboards too though in the later case they can range from mid-grade all the way up to cell phone board in some cases.
