Hello,

Laptops are not known for their expansion capabilities. A alot of them, for space reasons, have built-in video, audio, and wireless controllers on the motherboard so that they can be power-optimized, and minimal hassle.

Laptops are designed for doing work, connectivity to the internet, light reading, and it is a bonus if they have DVD software to play movies on... movies with the proper sound characteristics to sound good.

If you bought the laptop as a sole game-playing device, you were mislead, or you didn't do your homework. Sorry.

I doubt it. You'd have to get the parts from IBM. If the motherboard they're offering has a 64MB video card, and you've already got a 32MB (for instance, I don't know the exact specs), it's not even worth fooling with.
