    Can't be done...just like 99.9% of every other Apple laptop introduced since 1989.

    That's right, even the brand new 2011 models. Very few notebook computers whether they be a Mac or PC have removable or changeable graphic adapters.

    There are some special notebook PCs that do - made for gamers. Very high priced though.
