W530 Graphics Card Change ?
Thanks for reply.
I remember reading somewhere that a guy changed the GPU in his/her ThinkPad (maybe a W520, not sure), and no serious hacking were needed. But he/she was just upgrading the low-end GPU of that model to a high-end. If I try to put something not on W530's specs list onto my computer, things may go differently.
Maybe it's safer to forget the Lenovo and buy one of those highly configurable gaming laptops instead? (Still, there are not many choices for me. Quadros on gaming models are rare, and I do need one.)
And Quadro is mostly geared toward business applications
Thanks for the reply.
Put everything in one model would ruin their market share and chances to offer different items level to consumers
I guess that's why those gaming brands can have their own room to survive.
Never paid much attention to those brands until now. Kind of scary for me.
Maybe I'll get a Clevo or something. They put such massive cooling tubes and other fancy stuff into the 15" without making the chassis looking aggressive/game-like. That's pretty impressive.
