    It seems that the 17" still rocks MXM, for those of you that are interested.

    Yup the p5200m so no real big difference there. The screen change and the 10gb is the big kaboom

    Actually it's the screen AND the P5200, while waiting to see the storage configuration, as I've found some confusing information so far. The P5200 gains some extra cores and clocks, so it gets between 1070 and 1080 in terms of gaming performance. I guess that would be the Max-Q version* with ~110W TGP, still nice though. Also it seems that it has tool-less disassembly, so that would be interesting.

    * The Max-P version is expected to be ~150W TGP and given that the G5 only comes with 200W PSU, I seriously doubt that it would be this one.

    Still MXM, just lower power one. Just like there are quite literary as much as 1070 versions as the laptop models that have it. It's not even funny.

    Can we fit any MXM card in this laptop? Like 980M MXM card from my MSI GT80 for example.
    I asked HP sales person to customize 17 G4 and she said I can only select Quadro cards.

    Through HP Quadros and Radeon Pro/FirePro only. Aftermarket - pretty much everything you can stuff in there with a few exceptions. And to fully answer your question - you can run the 980m as well. It might lack automatic fan control though, but you can do it manually with HWInfo.

    Dont forget you need to trick the drivers to install on non HP GPU's
    For me the Displayport to HDMI cables stopped working after changing the gpu
