Turion's are laptop/netbook only and mobility label on the gpu/integrated both point to this being a laptop/netbook :sarcastic:  , it that wasn't enough he/she says its a laptop in the first line.

I agree the graphics card, which is integrated is pretty bad, but it can't be upgraded as its a laptop.

You should be able to run 4 or 5 year old games fairly well, but only with the settings toned down.

Short answer is that you can't upgrade, unfortunately. Either get a new notebook capable of running the games you want to play or go for a desktop gaming system. The latter tends to be the better option, if it is an option for you, because you can either spend the same money as you would on a laptop and get a better system or go for comparable specs on the desktop and save money. A desktop is also upgradeable in the future.

Thank you all.
Although I was under the impression that you could upgrade to a new Graphics chip according to what I have seen online and on the AMD website
