I plan on ordering the laptop with the lowest cpu and then buying that one and install it myself if that will work. thanks for the help More about : 940xm alienware m17x buwish a b D Laptop a b à CPUs July 29, 2010 1:14:16 AM It depends what chip you are going to order in it. If it is an ultra mobile i7, it maybe a different socket, but I am unsure. Chances are if you go with a 720 or 740, it will be the same socket. nickmagnus July 29, 2010 4:00:47 AM im going with the 720 so i think im going to bite the bullet on the 940 and hope. should be pretty sweet for a mobile rig with the 5870 xfire.
