Default upgrading gaming notebooks

is it possible to upgrade a GPU in a laptop?

i'm thinking about purcashing a ASUS G2P notebook that comes core 2 duo (2.0), 2gigs of DDR2 ram, and a x1700.

i was wondering if its possible to replace the x1700 after i get the notebook? or is it pratically impossible to upgrade GPU's in notebooks

usually the company will upgrade for you if you send it in,
I don't recommend trying on your own.
Alienware is supposed to be good for switching out notebook gfx, but they're also expensive.
