    non-onboard graphics in a laptop? very few and far between. good luck in finding one, it certainly won't be cheap.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    Cheapest I have found so far is about $2400 with a Geforce 7300 in. Not too bad, but interested to see if there are any < $2k ones

    got a link to it ?

    sorry looks like i'm a bit out of date with laptops. however they are still only the mobilty vers not the full house cards. there where a few laptops that came out with full top end video cards on a daughter board. battery life wasn't very good

    http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.ph...detail&id=2773

    And there is also this one: http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.ph...detail&id=2392
    That has a nVidia GeForce GO 6100-128MB Shared VRAM. Not quite sure what that is. Sounds like a dedicated card, but it's using shared ram.

    Ok, it looks like it is about the same as onboard graphics, according to this website: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...50.2345.0.html

    Have a look at some of the laptops in the Asus z92 range, they are mostly sub 2k and all have either a go 7300 or a go 7600

    Yeah, but none of the sub 2k laptops on dell let you add a graphics card afaik. Only the more expensive ones have that option.

    Thanks for that tip lagbort, will have a look.
