Its soldered onto the motherboard to reduce size from the retention mechanism and just general thickness.

Instead of a huge bulky socket with pinns, the pads of the CPU get a dab of solder each and some hot air then melts the solder onto pads on the motherboard. The solder is strong enough to hold the CPU and substrate firmly to the motherboard

depends on the laptop, some laptop have PGA / LGA (socketed), some have BGA (soldered).

if your laptop is older than 8 years, you may have a socketed cpu, otherwise newer laptop almost all have BGA.

The last time Intel laptops seen using LGA is the 4th gen.
