    Yes they can be replaced.
    Some are soldered on the motherboard, which is annoying, but it's still not a tuff job to replace one.
    I'm not sure about yours yet, I'm looking.

    the 2650 has it sodered on to the motherboard and i wouldnt suggest replacing it, you can try but there is a chance (depending on your sodering skill) that you will permanently damage the motherboard.
