By tossing $2,000 away on a laptop which was supposed to have this supposed “upgrade path lasting two (graphics) generations...”
... Only for Pascal to come and destroy that - by that, I mean requiring an absolute overhaul on the laptop itself to accept the 10x0 MXM units (motherboard, PSU, etc.)
Fuck. I doubt I could take MSi to court with a class action lawsuit if they promised to have an upgrade path.
Lesson of the day? Don’t do what Uncle Satoshi did, kids.
Update: Someone had an offer sheet up for trade-ins and, welp. I get to cough up $700 for a fuck-up on MSI’s part.
