Hi there guys, hope everybody here is doing well.
Can I just start off by saying I love this laptop and even though I can purchase a new laptop if needed I do not know of any other laptop that is so nice to use and feel like this baby. A friend of mine recently was out looking for a decent laptop and ended up buying 3 different laptops one after another only having to take them all back because of one thing or another, touchpad issues being the main reason for 2 of the laptops going back. Man when I was playing around on those laptop I was just yearning for the responsiveness of the touchpad of my M1730, and the glowing keyboard, arhh the glowing keyboard!!!
Anyway what the situation is my graphics has gone again, the first time it went I took it to a pc repair shop who did inform me that they can replace the card or do some kinda solder thing with the graphics card which should give it some life for some time yet, I took that option - that was 3 months ago!
Now I purchased my laptop around 4-5 years ago and i guess it would have the standard graphics card installed which I think is the Dual SLI 8700mGT but now instead of going down my previous choice of getting a patch work done on my graphics card I wand to try and replace the graphics card myself.
I would just like to ask what is the latest graphics card for this model of laptop also what is the the best value for money graphics card or are they one of the same?
I see the Dual SLI 8800mGTX is the card being mentioned on most searches is this the best option?
Also if anyone is from London one here is there somewhere on a Sunday where I could pick up a graphics card today maybe for I could begin the process of saving my baby from the laptop heaven.
