And the two images at the bottom, not sure about this but I would have thought one would show the add in card and the other would show the mobo integrated version?
Something missing from the following sentence (second page, towards the bottom):
".. - this is something that ATI's Mobility Radeon X700, coupled with PowerPlay 5.0." ..does?

You would also have to be sure that the FX 5200 was based on MXM, which it can't be, because FX 5200 isn't a native PCI-Express SKU.
When I was discussing upgradability, I was referring to things that will happen in the future, a place of upgradable notebook harmony where both NVIDIA and ATI are aiming to get to as soon as possible.
