They dont force you to buy upgrades from them, that approach was abandoned a long time ago. They say that you should only use their parts, and using other parts does void the warranty in most cases, and in that respect they are kind of forcing you to upgrade with only their stuff. But the use of strictly proprietary components was abandoned a long time ago. That is why Intel went back to the Socket and went from the Slot, and that is why Compaq abandoned MCA architecture (I think it was called MCA)
