    Hi,

    Is it easy to update to a new graphics card for a pre SR Macbook, just like updating RAM? or is it more complicated and unnecessary to do so? Thanks for any input in advance.

    On a side note: i've noticed people respond here faster than any other forums i've participated in. just thought i threw that out there

    There are very few laptops where the graphics can be updated.

    Integrated or not, Apple laptops, like most other vendors, do not have removable graphics controller. The MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Dell everything, HP everything, Acer everthing, etc., have non-upgradable graphics. Some specific gamer-oriented PC laptops have upgradable graphics, but expect to pay a lot and carry around an 8+ lb. machine.

    Yup, unfortunately the chips are sauntered on and cannot be changed.
