The Core i7-3840QM, the highest Ivy Bridge processor that is not under the Extreme Edition branding, is $600, it comes in a BGA package.
I'm am not stating an opinion. I am stating fact. CPUs are soldered to the motherboard. Which is what your original argument is based off, CPUs are not soldered. But they are!
