Do notebook GPUs follow a certain form factor, or is it different for every model? I know most Dell inspirion GPUs look the similar, and i know that within some dell models, are interchangeable with a few modifications, but can a GPU from two totally different notebooks work (potentially)?

My goal, to take a barebones Aopen 1894L and fit it with a go5700 (from a toshiba p25-670).

heh...ehehh...haaahaa.....MW...MWAHAHAHA.. im fittin to do some mad scientist $#!+ to that notebook..

I've never heard of GPU swapping in laptops. I could be wrong but I don't believe this is possible.

Me: are you saying I can't provide?
Me: cause I know I can provide.
Me: oh and I can provide money too;)
Rachel:): why do we need money when we can just stay in our room and have sex all day?

well, Alienware has their GPU switching nonsense, but that's proprietary. I supppose you could fiddle around with a soldering iron and perhaps a chainsaw, and you might have some luck, providided there's a fool moon.

AHHH <b>MOTHERLAND!!!!!</b>
