Thinkpad P51 Graphics card upgrade

2018-04-01, 5:00 AM

Quite simply, does a P51 have a MXM port for easy upgrading or is it soldered in? Should I buy a P71 if I want to upgrade my laptop later?

Solved! See the solution

Hello,


According to its Hardware Maintenance Manual, the ThinkPad P51 does not use a MXM graphics module.  The ThinkPad P71 does, though, according to its Hardware Maintenance Manual.  From looking at the manual, it looks like it requires extensive teardown and, of course, you'll have to use a compatible MXM graphics module.
