Like I say, laptop graphics are non-upgradable. An external graphics card (these don't exist by the way) could only go into a PCMCIA slot or a USB port, both of which would be using slower transfer speeds than the one that is soldered into the laptop now.

Therefore to upgrade the graphics on a laptop, you have to buy a new laptop. The decent ones don't come cheap.

Usually the only thing you can upgrade is the RAM on a laptop they are very concise and expensive, so seems more while getting something a little over the top so it can last you, as long as your willing to rinse some £££ that is
