    Feedback:
    - eBay - eBay
    - NBR - Have sold couple of CPUs (X9000 and T9500), couple of GPUs (HD 4670 and GT 240m), as well as pretty expensive 4GB DDR2 modules, but don't have feedback thread.

    Specifications:
    - Intel i7-940XM - SLBSC - does it need explanation?
    - Intel i7-820QM - SLBLX - same ^
    - HP nVidia Quadro 5000m - Very low usage, like new. It is a working pull out of barely used 8740w. It has ~100 hours on it, probably less. Excellent cosmetic and functional order. GPU with heat-sink, fan and bracket. Plug'n'Play upgrade. NOT K5000m!!!
    - Toshiba Mobility Radeon HD 4650 1GB DDR3 - Soldered BIOS chip, would work on most MXM-II machines, check compatibility first.
    - Clevo AMD HD 7970m - It's v1.1 revision, flashed with DELL 022 vBIOS as of now, used around an year, can flash it back to stock, or whatever one wants.
    - DELL AMD HD 6970m/M8900 - The surviving sister of a failed CrossFire setup, the unleaded solder keeps the Solder Gods busy :( Has its balls changed to leaded ones, it should last longer, but how much and how much life it has left, I really don't know (hence the price). Currently flashed with DELL M8900 vBIOS, can flash it to 6970m if needed, but it should run flawlessly, given your machine supports it in first place.

    Photos of the 6970m/M8900.

    Hey mate,
    Can you tell me from what system that Clevo 7970M v1.1 was pulled from and does it work with a Dell vbios on it?
    Curious..

    I don't think that it's possible, I think there are a bit more differences than just the vBIOS. If it is possible, let me know.

    there is a thread here by JayBee, a tutorial on how to blind flash a 7970m vbios to work with HM series laptops - it is said to work so maybe you could check it out?

    So, you want me to flash it with this vBIOS... and then what? It's not like I have an HM to test it, and it wont output picture on my machine with the stock BIOS, so quite likely with this one too. Also a link would've been helpful.

    EDIT: Found it:

    "ATTENTION! There are several different revisions of the 7970M out there, but only one of them (v1.2) works in the HM series laptops! v1.1 and v1.0 DO NOT WORK, no matter what kind of vbios u flash!"

    As I thought. I already said that they are a bit more different than the vBIOS they came with. Sorry.
