Lenovo G580: Dedicated gpu possible?

Hi folks!
I have literally bought a Lenovo G580 within the last 24 hours and have already noticed the HD 4000 igpu isn't that grand. I wasn't expecting miracles but I was on a budget and had to get a laptop there and then for work. This was all I could afford that met the criteria.

Basically I want to know if there is any chance of me being able to (easily?) upgrade the graphics card in the future. I don't really want to void the warranty by opening it up to check the space requirements but don't really know where to look for such information.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

no, because from my knowledge ibm doesnt let u upgrade the mobile graphics chip, and most laptops dont, except a few custom made laptops from alienware, sager, etc

your pretty much stuck with ur soldered integrated graphic card sadly ;p

looking at the product sheet and specs it looks like what you got is all you get...
affordable laptops are not usually designed for the hard core gamer.
