    It doesnt if you look at the video there is clearly a power connector. It may run without it but who knows. Also the card seems a little long. I think its past the 82x105 dimensions.

    Its not. But it more than likely was for the purpose of the video.

    There aren't any headers for it to be connected on the motherboard - Also of note, it's MUCH longer than a standard MXM card, but seems to be the normal width... It's mounted at an angle!

    I think it might be wishful thinking seeing as how the card has the connection it more than likely utilizes it but as i said it could run without it. Truly the only way to really know is to bite the bullet and buy the system. Which is crazy. But hell its for sale and well you know science.

    I believe it is an aetina M3N1080-NN. The card seems to match up.

    That 1080 is clearly about 1cm taller - The 1060 is normal height, the 1080 is taller by a bit more than the width of that power connector.

    What I see, though, is that 1080 with connector MIGHT fit well inside the P870DM/DM-G model.
