    I saw it in a Portuguese tech forum. The user who posted is usually a well informed user who lives in the UK.

    Its pre order price, I guess it could be better after launch.

    i'd be surprised if it was using MXM but that would be a big "if".

    It would be cool if it was mxm. Then we could simply exchange for Vega when it comes out.... Though it would be a question of how high tdp it would support.

    That and something else... Are these CPUs bga or not? If not... It should be ok/simple to replace the 1600 with 1700 for example down the line, or heck even ryzen 2 of it stays on the same socket

    More likely Navi. Vega is high-end only.

    I would not base a purchase on that being likely even if it is MXM. Assume the opposite and be pleasantly surprised if it happens.

    Oh I'm hardly basing my purchase on that...
    I'm just saying it would be nice it was MXM and not bga. That way you increase chances of MXM cards... but as I said, you then go into the territory of TDP tolerance.
    The ROG systems might not be well designed to tolerate higher TDP's... however, if OEM's can fit 120W GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080's into laptops... then the cooling shouldn't really be a problem.

    Upgradeability options would certainly be welcome on the same platform.
    Just imagine getting Ryzen 1600 laptop with RX 580 and then replacing with Ryzen 2 and Vega or Navi.
    :D

    This kind of support is more likely on desktops... though if the mobo is a baeline B350 type... and an AM4 chipset, then it should be compatible with future Ryzen CPU's.

    If they do what they've done in the past, expect a BGA CPU and a proprietary form factor GPU with no upgrade kits available.

    Even those days are passed. Nowadays ASUS is BGA both even on their thickest G notebooks. Expect no different from this.

    Was hoping they'd come back to the fold with the newer GPUs. Oh well.

    If so, they'd be Max-Q cards then no? It'd be great to hear about the next generation of AMD and NVIDIA cards soon though.
