I had a question for those of you more knowledgeable than I am. I've been wondering about this issue for a while, ever since I found out that laptops aren't all that upgradeable (I'm still learning about computers). Anyway, I only have a 32mb video card on my laptop, and unfortunately it's not shared memory or anything. So I have no way to upgrade the actual hardware. The thing I was wondering is if there was such a thing as a PCMCIA video card, or an external card for laptops with this issue. Like I said, I'm still in the process of learning about computers (I thought I knew quite a bit, but that idea came crumbling down), so this might be a ridiculous question. But I just thought I'd ask. Well, thanks for any feedback.

i've never seen one, but i have seen things that plug into a usb port for "adding another monitor" basically, an external video card, but i doubt they suppourted 3d acceleration, so it would most definatley perform worse than your current one. i know some ibooks have replaceable video chipsets, but you would have to contact the manufacturer of your laptop to find if they have such a thing.
