    I do think it should be a trade in program not a "upgrade program". Upgrade implys payment. Don't get me wrong I don't want free stuff. If they fix it by giving me a comparable motherboard? Sure. But that's not going to happen. I even said they can put my GTX 970m back in the GT83VR Chasis and I can upgrade later to the 1070.

    Nope. I'm afraid not. I tried to shed some insight, but that didn't work so i'm done. We shall see when we see i'm afraid.

    Exactly why no resellers will say anything.

    If there is a replacement mxm 1080 for the GT73, I don't think a cut down version to try and get around the upgrade promise would be a good thing.

    I would like to see a full fat 1080 for my GT72 but I accept that is not possible at present.

    Best solution for me would be for MSI to upgrade me to a GT73 at the cost of a "full fat" 1080 mxm upgrade, less the resale value of my gtx980m.

    I'm happy to chuck up to 1,000 bucks at the deal.

    I'd like a MSI dragon toy as compensation.

    Any chance of this happening in your opinion?

    We've had to do a lot of clean-up in this thread. If you want to argue something off-topic, create a new thread, or do it via conversation.

    Also the new GT72 has no mux switch and no option to RAiD SSD's so that would be a downgrade in my book.

    I too could accept a $1,000 upgrade path to a GT73.

    I would begrudgingly pay for the upgrade. I think it would be less for me because I only want the GTX1070 for the GT83VR upgrade, they run cooler from what people say. But I'll still be an " upset" customer. Anyone think it's possible to put a GTX970 or 980 into a GT83VR?
