  • ASUS M51SN-B1 User Upgradable

    I am still researching a few items before I buy. I know the Sagers seem to be fairly easy to upgrade components myself. So how about the ASUS M51SN-B1?

    Say I get one of these and down the road I want to change out the video card, would I be able to do it? Would it be able to be upgraded to a "gaming" class card? Would Xotic have a swap out like it does for Sagers?

    I am quite comfortable in the desktop world, but laptops I have only swapped out memory and such as well as minor troubleshooting (lcd connectors).

    Thanks for any help!

    Unfortunately with any Asus Ensemble notebook you will not be able to upgrade the video card. All Asus ensemble notebooks will come fully loaded and complete from Asus which is why you will not see Asus laptops labeled as user upgradeable. If you would like a notebook with future upgradeability, i would recommend a Sager notebook

      Kind of what I figured. Thanks for the answer.
