No, most notebooks are relatively fixed for video. You can upgrade the video card from 32mb dedicated to 64mb dedicated if the bios accepts both but the video cards are often soldered and also it would cost much more to do this versus just buying it upfront.
If a notebook has no dedicated video option at all standard than you are out of luck,
A desktop with the proper expansion slot and enough memory and a fast enough processor can be upgraded multiple times as new video cards come out.
Essentially 128mb dedicated video is about as high as you can go without going over the $2,000 level.
Look at the Dell 6000 Pentium M Sonoma 15.4" LCD model for a great value with the ATI 128mb dedicated video option...........
Hi, just purchased my first laptop (used) and wondering can video cards be replaced like desktops or, if not, can I improve video performance in any other way
