No. Laptops graphics card are being "modular" because it is easier for the manufactor to slap one on. That doesn't mean you can find another one for it. Especially with a custom heatpipe.

That's a pretty ignorant statement considering many laptops are using 8400's-8600's.

Hey, you made the statement without prior knowledge. But You are right in a way, if it is soldered onto the mainboard. Technically it isn't its own "dedicated" card. But rather "onboard".

Hello,

My name is Mike, Iím a Technical Analyst located at Dell corporate headquarters in Round Rock, TX. Iím part of an internet outreach team developed to interact with the online community regarding technical questions and issues that customers face with Dell products. Iíve read the question and comments here and wanted to chime in with some clarification.

The Inspiron 6400 comes in 2 flavors, dedicated graphics and onboard. If youíve ordered the system with onboard graphics then you canít add in a graphics card because there are no connections on the motherboard. If you did order the system with dedicated graphics then you have the option of the 128MB ATI x1300 (64MB onboard/64MB shared) or 256 MB ATI x1400 (128 MB onboard/128MB shared.)

You can get a better idea of what the cards look like and how they fit in the system here. I hope this helps clear up any confusion.

Mike
Dell customer advocate
