Default "128mb dedicated, up to 319mb shared."

ATI Radeon X1200 series
128mb = dedicated
up to 319mb = shared from system memory

I have 2gb (1x2gb 667) installed in my laptop.

Display properties - settings - advanced - adapter tab...

"Memory size - 700mb"

Why is that 700? Shouldn't that be 319? Or is this something different that I don't realize?

(laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422)

edit - Using Sandra Lite I found the following. Total memory - 700mb (120mb video) (561.69mb system)
So can it use up to 700mb of shared system memory?? Why was it advertised as 319mb??
There's no place like /home.
