The Gateway P-series laptops are NOT mxm based. I just opened my Gateway p-173x FX and was horrified to find that the gpu, the 8800m GTS 512mb was hardsoldered onto the MB along with the vram chips. The gpu is part of the mb and can't be removed/upgraded. This totally blows. Hope this helped some people. :/

Here is a pic of the MB and the GPU
