Nvidia has announced a standard for add-in video upgrades for all classes of laptops. Nvidia has said it will be an open standard so other vendors (aka ATI) can have upgrade offerings too. See the link below.

Many mainstream laptop vendors have bought into the Nvidia standard so it looks like life is about to get much better for the portable computing crowd. :)

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
