Default HP ZD8225 Pavilion Laptop

I read rumors that the ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 128 MB video memory graphics card is integrated onto the motherboard and can never be changed in the furur? Is this true, and does this not matter since the graphics card is very strong for many years to come?

For the most part, graphic cards in lappys are non-replaceable. A few say that they have replaceable modular graphics, but not many.
