    Oh Jaybee, how am I suppose to copy you on a 2960XM-chip? Way to expensive for me. So I give up, you will have the "hottest" HM laptop around... Looking forward to your guide.

    hahaha just keep ur eyes peeled on ebay buddy! and be patient, i myself waited for a couple of months until i snatched one up for 350€ :) thats exactly the amount i paid for my 2860qm before :p for me it was either that or go get a new machine. i figured im just so happy with my hm that i wouldnt bother selling it off just yet. guess ill stick with it until after broadwell :D but until then, ill try and squeeze all the performance out of it that i could possibly get. who knows,maybe were lucky enough to do another gpu upgrade in the next two years :)

    Heck, with Prema's bios my 2860QM hoovers around 8500 in cpu scoore in 3D11, and I got zero issues with my 7970M, no bsods, no driver problems. My HM is a keeper for a long time. And if we can upgrade to next GPU-generation, I would proabably go with the 2960QM, and skip Haswell altogether.

    You mean the 2960XM... sadly not possible to OC in your P150HM (but that would be awesome if one could)

    Yeah you'll be golden for a good amount of time.

    Although there's a way to keep your machine even longer by cross-flashing the P170HM BIOS :p

    keepin in touch with our resident bios wizard prema in order to determine the extent of intel xtu functionality once the p170hm is crossflashed :)

    ps: yippieh, the ebay seller sent off the package today :D

    got my eyes on two promising models on ebay atm ;) be aware that ull have to create ur own franken-psu, thus use a matching cable from one psu and transfer it to the one whose wattage u need.
    no worries, ill keep u updated with all the details once i get started ;)
