You can upgrade the video cards. There's another option through dell for a 128 MB card, but I figured that it would give me even less battery life, and it would generate a lot of heat, and I wouldn't be using it a lot, so I just got the free 64 MB upgrade. I ordered it last night..hopefully it will be here by friday!
