Does anyone know if the R2 version of the m17x supports the new 940xm cpu? 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

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.

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.

how much would it be in USD for that x8100 with the 940 and 2 480's with 4GB ram or so and everything else your default config?

the 940 xm is still about 1300 USD and the 480M are 800 USD each, and i sell the X8100 with all factory factory options for 1399 usd without the GPU option selected.
