I'm assuming you're oo Jack oo from NBF :)

Copy paste from there:

I have no real ETA, but it should be waaay less than a year.

As to your second question: yes, it will void your guarantee, but the chance of actually frying your lappy is very small. The thermal budgets of both cards are comparable or at least they don't differ enough to warrant any fireworks

wouldnt my m5700 not even recognize the card? the bios would not recognize it. would you have to hack the bios? but then your warranty is 100% gone

In theory, no flashing of the Bios is required, as the video bios is on the MXM card.

But there's no way of telling how the manufacurers handle this. They may have implemented a mechanism that disables upgrade :) even though I have have heard of no actuall occurances of that.
