    Ah man I had the curtesy of owning one of these beasts, I converted the 8935g I bought into a 8940g with a motherboard swap. The thing was a beast.

    I believe it was the first 18.4’’ laptop that had an mxm slot, it can take a gtx 980 (non m) with a few mods to the bottom chassis and heatsink. Motherboard is built like a tank, the whole thing is built like a tank lol.

    Wow that's wild! I am guessing you had to mod the .inf? Still have pictures of it with a 980 in it? I have quite a few laptops I've swapped boards from better models in myself so totally understand why you did that. I am probably looking for a laptop that's near impossible to find but I would love to find one.

    Let me have a look actually, I may have a few pictures of the mods I did ;)

    It was a great laptop and I don’t think you’d find a 8940G, those are rare af.
