"Hello TNT team,

According to what I've read in defense of soldered memory it is slightly more power efficient and faster because of better quality direct connections, rather than through some slot, therefore being soldered it takes less space on the motherboard. This probably saves money in manufacturing and assuming you replace the laptop after 3 years, the durable good limit, is cost efficient.
