M17x R4 Embedded Logitech Receiver

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share a small mod I did to my M17x R4. I really love the red color of the laptop but the only mouse I could find that matched it well was the Logitech M510 in red. This mouse is not Bluetooth and I really didn't want the unifying receiver sticking out all the time, so I bought a mini pcie USB adapter and installed the Unifying receiver in the laptop's empty pcie slot under the keyboard. There was plenty of clearance for the receiver and it works perfectly.


This is the adapter I bought.


I had to clip the extra length.





I also wanted to add that while I had it apart I upgraded the ram from the stock DDR3 16GB to DDR3L 32GB. This had the unexpected side effect of fixing an issue with the computer losing power whenever it was put to sleep. Sleep now works great!
