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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources which to choose Used Alienware M17X-R2 vs new Lenovo Ideapad Y500 ?? - Forum M17xr2 alienware config problem - Forum My 3rd ATI replacement in my Alienware M17x-R2!
