Default graphics on my laptop


i have a question about improving my graphics on my laptop. i recently heard that you can upgrade the graphics on your laptop but i wasn't sure because in the past i've was always told that a laptop is bought as is, meaning that its not made to make improvements on in the future, whatever it has on it when you got it is whats going to stay on it.
was just hoping someone could clear this up for me

ive got an hp laptop and the specs are:

os: home vista 64 bit

4gb ddr2

ATI Radeon HD 3200

AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-80

Very few high-end laptops have upgradeable graphics. I haven't heard of any new models that do. If yours supported it, the manufacturer should have info about it on their website.
