    Aye, I imagine they're made that way because they also come bare bones?

    Yes, the retail and barebones are the same basic design.

    The new 16F3 barebone will have ivy bridge support and comes with a GTX670M as standard.

    Re: MXM Video Cards

    All the laptops that I am looking at have a Radeon 6650. If possible, I'd really just like to plop in a card with 16 ROPs.

    Though maybe if I can find a A8 Llano with a dedicated card for CFX. Though everything I am finding is i3 or i5 which is cool too.

    Re: MXM Video Cards

    But their still dedicated.

    Are they embedded on the motherboards?

    There are a whole variety of MXM sizes.

    Re: MXM Video Cards

    MXM-A has largely been abandoned (due to the extra height it adds). They will be dedicated chips soldered onto the board. The MSI barebones or a second hand machine is the cheapest way to get an MXM notebook.
