Dear all,

I suspect that the answer to this is "no chance" - but I wonder whether there's anyone with any advice on putting a graphics card into the only available slot (a 1 mini PCIe) on this machine?

The above is a link to the specs.

I suspect the answer will be that there's no possible upgrade (given space and power considerations) but there's a wealth of knowledge here, so you never know!

✔ Best Answer
The only mini-pcie cards I could find are wireless & SATA controller cards. Even if a graphics card is available, it would probably push the limit of the 135W PSU unless it was very low power. And if that's the case, it probably wouldn't be all that much better than the Intel GMA 4500 IGP. If you only have 2GB RAM, adding more memory would make more sense.

Many thanks and apologies for the belated response. I did sort of think as much, but thank you for confirming.

Will look at the RAM upgrade as suggested also.
