Just so you know before you buy...Please read http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=448&threadid=161340&enterthread=y

This is so you don't come back posting you can't update your graphics card.

Nope, no Toshitba laptop has the ability to change the graphics card. But depending on the games you will want to play, you might need to look at an AMD APU based laptop with dual graphics, or something with a bit more graphical kick, such as the This ASUS one or This one.

If by 'change' you mean replace...no. I am speaking of updating the drivers...which you can do only by getting them from Toshiba....(this holds true for Panasonic and Sony laptops as well). And after about 2-3 updates they quit offering them. Depending on the games you expect to play on your laptop...I'll just say ..don't expect too much. From any laptop. If your gaming needs are modest. I am having good results using the Intel HD3000 graphics that are imbedded in the I3, I5, and I7 cpu's. Now they have the HD4000 which is even better, and out performs most low and mid-level  discrete graphics from AMD and Nvidia. Look at the benchmarks:

Here is a good article :  http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000-Benchmarked.73567.0.html

Do some Google searches and read the posts in this laptop forum to know what to expect...I would stay away from any dual graphics/switchable graphics or any hybrid combination. They are problematic and are totally dependent on the laptop manufacturer.

Another route to take would be designing your own laptop and eliminate almost all the problems you get from the toshibas of the world. Choose what you want....  http://rjtech.com/shop/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30156  or  here .... http://rjtech.com/shop/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30122
