In the video you may see a few dozen places where mistakes could be made and the inspection process is very quick at each stage except the last where it is power up. The narrator pronounces "solder" as "sawlder", do we say it wrong? HE also calls where the CPU goes a, "PCU socket".

In Great British English we pronounce solder. US English uses the lazy L and soder which would get you in trouble in Blighty. When I worked at Thomson as it was a multi national company no one batted an eye lid but when I visited some home to fix their TV's they had a hard time figuring out what I was going to do with their TV sets capacitors............

Well, not everyone here pronounces it that way, but you are right about that. Luckily, we are on a forum and we all spell it right, or most of us anyway. But, those are not the tings that get me. In the US, there is a difference in a Holiday and a vacation. Christmas is a holiday, taking off work for a week to take your family on a trip is a vacation. What's so hard about that? And while on the subject why, pray tell, is a chip a French Fried Potato and fries a crisp? After all they are officially called French Fried potatoes (even though I believe the fry was invented in Belgium). I mean, come on, folks, get it right. I know I left a lot of stuff out, but I figure that I said enough already to get me in trouble with my UK friends. But, this is a US site, we need to be able to communicate (even though the site is owned by a Brit) And don't give me any crap about the Queen's English. (or the Kings English, depending on who is sitting on the Throne at the time. I just got off what we in the US call the Throne).

Back in a min, I just need to get some beer and crisps from the BOOT of my car. You never know I might get a little peckish later as fish and chips never seems to fill me up too much.

I think their crisps are potato chips. Biscuits are cookies. Oh, now I need to go to the head...throne. Or library room, lol.
Torch=flashlight
Car trunk= Boot
Toilet=Loo

Biscuits.

We do get cookies as well, just that most of them are not very good. Millie's Apple & Cinnamon and White Chocolate & Raspberry are the mutt's nuts though.

In England there's no such thing as a vacation.

You can't argue with Cliff. It's a holiday.
