Default Midrange laptops?

I'm looking at laptops at the moment, and I either see Cheap laptops, average laptops but crappy vid cards, high end laptops with crappy vid cards, and High end laptops with a nice video card. Where are those laptops with a decent processor and a midrange card like the 8600, 9600, 240M gt, or 4670? I can never find a laptop like that. It is either integrated graphics, or pay a fortune for a gtx 285. I dont have money to spare like that!

Yes. But i don't know why you can find a laptop with all the same specs for $400 but with a crappy IGP. Why would you need to pay $200+ for an upgrade?
