Question How to upgrade a Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Graphics Card???

I am about to buy this laptop, and I have noticed bad reviews for the graphics card.

Sooo, how do I update it? I am very bad at graphic cards and stuff like that. How much would it cost? Where do I get one? Help!?

You can't. 97-98% of all laptops have soldered/integrated chips. They can't be upgraded or changed. It is what it is. Sorreh :| You can find a better lappy, though. HP makes nice laptops. Try to find a 8200m, 9600m, or GT120m. Those are all very nice mobile GPU's.

You won't be able to upgrade/add a dedicated graphics card in that laptop.

GT120m is a little slower than the 9600m. You can also get a 9800GTm, GTX 260m and 280m. Those are rare since you can't just "upgrade" to it. I was browsing some alienware lappies today with GTX260m and GTX280m options. Hell, you could even SLI them. The price tag reflected it though... :|
