/me was hoping it would be a simple graphics card switch with MXM or
AXIOM, but I guess that was a pipe dream :(

Seems my Dell can be configured at build time to use nvidia ATi or Intel
chips (I think with a proprietory Dell only MXM/AXIOM hybrid) but I
guess changing the intel board for a newer model is not quite that simple.

Hey ho
