Yes. Order a new powerbook or macbook, and pencil in "UPGRADE" on the receipt. Sorry. That's about it. :(

No there is no way to upgrade video memory.. i cant think of one memory card that you can upgrade for that matter..

Very few laptops allow GPU/VRAM upgrades; that is a very recent development. I'm afraid you're outta luck.

Well, you could possibly swap in the logic board from a 1.33GHz or 1.5GHz 12" (which would also give you the faster processor). When my PB's VRAM was semi-b0rked last year, I found a company that upgrades aluminum PowerBooks. I'm trying to find the site now, I'll post it if I do.
