I'm buying a laptop pretty soon and this is the one that I liked

It has pretty much everything I want, except that the integrated graphic doesnt really appeal to me...
I was wondering If I could upgrade the video in any way,,,

thanks

I would suggest you shop around for a similar laptop with the vid card you want in it.

well this laptop is $899 w/ 17" screen and 1GB of RAM and 1.5mb built in camera...
The cheapest core duo I can find with better video and the same specs is about $1,100...

And how much did you think it might cost you to install a good video card (if at all possible)? Less than the price difference of $210?

In any event, you are asking the question in the wrong place. Call the vendor/manufacturer and find out if the video card can be upgraded. (Ugh...)
