    I absolutely love the old HP Elitebooks over dells precisions, they are stronger and have much better panels, not to mention that the 8770w had edp at the time for dreamcolor!!!

    You could install the new RTX Quadro in that thing, it might boot if you load the vbios into HP's bios chip, cant say the same for a dell precision.

    To be fair that HP at the time cost a good thousand over the precision rival.

    Exactly my thoughts. 8770W is hell of a machine! Built like a tank!

    The M6700 also have eDP capabilities, I'm running it right now with a 4k panel, the M6700 bios issue for GPU upgrade is really killing it sadly, for sure using a 1060 or a 1070 (or even a 1080) in the M6700 would have been a lot cheaper and a more powerfull solution for gpu upgrading, but to be fair a P4000 or P5000 is a good pair for and "old" quad core ivy bridge cpu, my 3920XM @4.2GHz is a pretty good match with my P4000 which I get for less than a GTX1060 while being more powerfull, I think that Quadro RTX is overkill for these old ivy bridge cpu, except if you are planing to use an high resolution monitor, but even then, you are throwing big money in an old laptop instead of upgrading to a 6 or 8 core cpu laptop :/

    Sadly the cooling of elitebooks are hard to elaborate.

    TBH my favourite had been W701(ds), just the GPU can't be changed. :/ (The only imperfection of W701 is the position of RHS USB ports.)

    everything is locked, I'm looking about 86.04.2E.00.2C vbios, and also for those who have a P3000 and want to upgrade the M6700 gpu, you should try this vbios, it is very similar to the P5000 vbios

    No one has tried it yet, but it is likely that it will have the same issue that Pascal cards have, causing a lock-up at boot as the BIOS hands off to the OS.
