Well, this sucks. Thanks, though. I was all set to open up the laptop to take out the card , too. Good thing I didn't.
The main issue is that I'm stuck with this laptop for at least two years, and while I can run older games on it no problem, because the card is simply Intel HD Graphics, I have to play a guessing game every time I want to buy a new game, trying to figure out if I can play the game or if my card is too inferior.
