    Default can you change graphics cards in an acer

    Found a brilliant Acer, 2gig PM, 1gig ram, 100gig HD only thing is the graphics are 128meg and i would prefer 256meg. Im guessing probably not as I can only see 256meg nVidia and the 128meg card is ATi. cheers anyway

    Unless the specifications state if the cards MXM(or Axiom) the chances of upgrading are next to impossible.
