    I am looking at adding a 7970m to my M15x. If I was to add it, would I be adding 300-400$ value to my laptop or am i wasting my money? I mostly game on my watercooled 3930k/gtx680 desktop system, however when i don't wanna carry all 50 pounds of that to a lan party etc I would take the M15x. -


    Current specs:
    720qm
    16gb corsair ddr3
    240gb Corsair force 3 SSD
    900p LCD
    Current value is $850ish

    Would this laptop be worth $1100 or more adding a 7970m?

    nope, the screen is a killer on these guys. they don't seem to sell well without the 1080p screen.

    Really the m15x is my dream laptop other than weight and battery life. I will probably keep it so I'll upgrade it while a have a couple $s hidden from the wife! :) if it had the 1080 lcd would its value be?

    With a 1080p screen, I would think it's value like on C-list would be somewhere around $1200-$1400. Here on NBR, I would think at around $1000. Personally, if I upgraded my M15x like that, I would keep it! Throw a 920xm chip in there in place of that 720, and you have one hell o a machine!!
