    Laptops do not have graphics cards, they have graphics chips - part of the motherboard.
    wipe your paws.

    Dare I ask why you need to upgrade it? Last time I was over it was going fine.

    It is possible. But I don't think MXM slots are standardized.

    Take a pick.

    Possible, yes.
    Likely, I don't think so.

    Like I said MXM slots vary, there is no standardisation.
    I honestly doubt it will work.
    I would try to find someone in NZ who is willing to sell/install it. So you can return it if it isn't compatible.
    At nearly $800 it's not worth the risk.
