    Look at the pic next to it; it doesn’t look like it’s one that is embedded on the motherboard. It looks more like a desktop card. Couldn’t I change it out for a different one if I wanted? I keep hearing you can change out the GFX card on laptops but then I hear you can on the PCI E express ones or if they support it like someone said the AlienWare ones do, but I don’t know.

    But I want to know can I change it out for a better one if it fits and if I cant what laptop can get that I can change the GFX card.

    You will have to look up reviews of the laptop to see if its changeable, it used to be big a year ago but its hard to tell from the specification pages.
