Notebooks - Pre MXM version 3.0

The below notebooks predate MXM version 3.0 as 1.1,1.3, 2.0 and 2.1 notebooks are based on the same connector format and often more or less compatible with cards from any of the specification reincarnation. Please note that the indication of card format is not identical to the card in the notebook when it leaves the shop. As an example, the Alienware m5550 can be purchased with a Type II x1400 MXM board in it but the motherboard is identical to the m5750 and can be equiped with a Type III card even though no such notebook has ever been released by Alienware..

The links in the notes table will tell you something about our efforts with this notebook and will often refer to articles containing upgrades, replacement procedures and even Buy Now links.
