I'm checking into getting a laptop for school and such, but I really need a decent video card. I've done some checking and see that some manufactureres offer AMD processor laptops, but the v-cards are lacking at best, (in my opinion). Does anybody know of a decent, AFFORDABLE, as in the $1300 and under range, laptop with a good video card? I've read the threads on the eMachines with the 64 bit processor, however, I'm still not convinced about buying an eMachine. I'm not bashing them, but I'm just not too sure about them given some things I've heard from others about past experiences. But, like anything else, there is good and bad with anything nowadays. Is it possible to upgrade a video card on a laptop easily enough?

Any input is much appreciated

In most cases, you can't upgrade the videocard/GPU on a Laptop
Some manufacturers (like Alienware for example) do offer special laptops with upgradeable videocards, but they're pretty expen$ive...
