No. There are only a handful of laptops that take video card upgrades.

"I'd like to install the 5700, but ill really take whatever i can get into my machine. "

You would find a laptop that has such a card. Sadly, it's that simple.

thank you very much for the quick response. I assumed this would be the case, however, I was hoping that i might have been wrong, Seems like i'll need to get myself a desktop computer so I am not always out of date. Thank you again
