No Apple laptop, or all-in-one computer, can have it's graphics card upgraded...it's included in the mainboard.

This includes:
iBook
PowerBook
eMac
iMac

I wonder how often this silly question will continue to show...

Even in the PC-world, laptops with upgradable Video cards are VERY rare...

You must consider this, Avalon: Most computer users in this day are uneducated or ignorant. Neither is a bad thing. A question like the one posed, while it may seem silly to allot of people, is not common sense.

What WOULD be nice is if we could upgrade the video RAM, or if there was a way to allocate regular RAM to vidRAM.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

The question itself isn't really the problem, but the same question comming up regularly, every week, that's annoying...
