I was wondering if my macbook can change graphic card because currently I have GMA X3100 and it totally sucks Xp. I searched it in internet and some site says macbook is using intel chipset or something and cannot be upgraded. Some site tho says that it can be upgraded. I am totally new to these kinda stuff (like i would be blowing my mind trying to understand wtf they mean by saying ATI or Radeon) so if possible please keep it in simple terms for stupid ppl like me XD

Simple answer, no, you can't change the video card.

It is integrated into the motherboard.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

In general, the only things on a notebook/laptop that can be changed is HD and memory. Everything else is usually too well integrated to be upgradable..
