PCI or APG

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Fujitsu Simens Esprimo Mobile X5535 Laptop and i need to know whether it has a slot for an APG Graphics Card or only PCI's. I am a regular WoW player and need to get a new graphcs card as my SIS Mirage 3+ is rubish!

Laptops have integrated graphics. You can't upgrade the graphics internally.

If you wanna be able to play games & play them well, you're gonna have to buy a new laptop...preferrably a gaming laptop.

OK thanks for your reply. I'm not to good with Computers (Old Fashioned Dad) Does that mean i can't get a new graphics card in my laptop? What does Intergrated Graphics mean?

It means the graphics chip is part of the motherboard. Laptops generally are so crowded inside that it isn't practical to design with replaceable parts.

All that can be upgraded on MOST laptops is memory.

To put it plainly...you can NOT upgrade the video card. Your laptop's definitely NOT a gamer & there's no way to turn it into one.

And as I said in the other response, if you wanna be able to play games & play them well, the only thing you can do is buy a new laptop. Decent gaming laptops start at about $1000 & go up from there.

if the primary use is gaming, though, you might consider a desktop: you can get a desktop that would perform the same as a laptop for much cheaper, because the manufacturer doesn't need all the parts to be itty-bitty. Desktops usually have more options for future upgrades too.

a good gaming laptop will run you about $2k - $3k, and you could build or buy a good gaming desktop for around $1,500.
