    Majority of people in this thread believe MSI is trying to overcharge for the privilege of trading up.

    It is shambles.

    What you 'think' is irrelevant. Maybe next time read a topic you feel you want to partake in, as to not demonstrate ignorance?

    As with those with unupgradable Clevo models, MSI's offer appears to be good. But Clevo never advertised being able to upgrade to Pascal whereas MSI did. Just for your knowledge the MSI MXM GTX1080 costs $1,000 according to MSI USA and the MXM GTX1060 costs $600.

    As far as I know the format of the card is not defined by Nvidia either, as I recall it's designed by a group of manufacturers.

    Btw I got an email today from MSI where they said that "unfortunately my laptop couldn't be upgraded", funny thing is that I never even wrote to them! I did post on their forum though so maybe that's why they are writing to me. (I have a GT72S)

    How can you not be upgraded? How did they end up with that statement?

    Welcome to the party, mate. I don't recall any vikings in the thread so far. You'll be the first one then.

    Don't know but I replied back, so lets see what happens - it will probably end up being too expensive anyway.

    I'm from Denmark btw.
