    Hey lads,

    It's been a while since I've been active on this forum but I've been somewhat keeping up with the latest in hardware anyway. Some of the questions that come up a lot when talking to friends of mine about MXM (or more often, explaining what it is) are about portability.

    What's the smallest/most 'portable' MXM-compatible laptop?

    Small laptop and MXM are an oxymoron :D

    I would personally say the old AW M15x would be among the "smallest" but it really is not a small laptop in any way.

    So this thing then would be the lightest MXM laptop?

    EDIT: And if so, what would be the most powerful GPU that could fit in it?

    ZBook 15 G2 owners have shoehorned MXM-Bs in there, but it is quite some custom work.

    The Clevo size I got from Clevo's official docks.

    The MSI size right here from @Charles P. Jefferies review on NBR (originally converted the length wrong to cm):

    http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/eurocom-tornado-f5-msi-16l13-review/

    The Clevo can use up to GTX 1080 (for now) & 9900K (officially) btw... ;)
