I work in a helpdesk where we don't use workstations, but we would be crippled if our machines could not be serviced without dropping in another motherboard. Lawyers are an unknown for me, but as far as medical machines they sometimes need huge memory for massive data-tables. Unless it became cost effective to just have an extra machine in the closet a front-end system for entry/registration/ticket processing would NEED to be serviceable or work would suffer.
