    Hey guys I was wondering if the tm2 from bestbuy would be able to accept an aftermarket ATI gpu.......Reason being is I have a massive store credit to use and buying from HP is not an option. I would only consider buying this laptop if I could add the ATI gpu into the stock one from bby. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that you have to buy the machine from HP with the 4550 simply because they are built to order and HP isn't/can't put the 4550 in an already built unit.

    Save that BB credit for an HP Slate!

    Hrm is there anyone that has the ATI configuration in hand? Can you check and see if the ATI gpu is soldered on or if it is plugged into a MXM or PCIE slot?

    I personally doubt that anyone is going to void their warranty to check this, but I could be wrong.

    Even it is socketed and assuming you'd install it yourself you'd be voiding your own warranty.

    You can get up to $500 dollars off with the coupon code floating around. You're not going to get that at Best Buy.
