Hey everyone, like a lot of people out there i'm currently debating whether or not to get C90s or the G1S.
ATM, I'm swaying towards the G1S.
The main advantage (at least to me) that the C90s has over the G1S is the upgradeable video card. I found this great site about MXM (M
obile PCI EX
odule. It looks like that the C90s takes the MXM type II. This is apparently reserved for mid-range cards.http://www.mxm-upgrade.com/Table.html
Basically, this means that unfortunately you cant necessarily go out and smack an x1800 in it. Apparently most of the high end MXM cards are Type III, which is apparently incompatible with Type II.
Honestly, by my way of thinking, there may very well be an available upgrade for Type II MXM slots in the next few months/years, but I think it will just be the next generation mid-range cards, rather than the full blown high end range. Not to mention, that according to MXM-upgrade.com apparently (how many times have I said that now? lol) the only place to buy MXM cards are at his store. They are fairly expensive. A Type III x1800 256MB goes for a nice 335€ (around $450 USD, so around 520 AUD? just rough estimates).
BTW - there is an active forum for MXM.http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/...p?showforum=67
Anyway, just thought I'd post my findings.
