About damm time somebody made one of these that worked. It's pure genius. Hopefully it's affordable, they could really make a killing with this for all those people who want to upgrade their laptop graphics' cards but are now finding out that they can't. I swear there's a topic about that almost every day in the hardware section.

Yea, this is an amazing idea. But I can see this being quite expensive at launch and after for awhile. I'd guess, tack on another 100 dollars to the video cards worth.

Is the video card inside upgradable? That would be the best idea I'd think.

That way, it'd be a one time cost for the whole thing, then to have the card be swappable, it'd offer plenty of upgradablility. Especially if it's eventually PCI-E x16.
