Can you remove the video card from an Alienware laptop and upgrade it? Let's say, a couple years down the road, I want to upgrade an Alienware laptop. Would I be able to pop out the old video card and put in a new one?
One thing you need to keep in mind is that even if they do use a modular form, they may end up being proprietary pieces. My brothers Dell Inspiron uses a modular Go 6800, but it's not a standard part and can only be upgraded with another Dell part. A general rule with laptops is try not to buy with the hopes of upgrading down the road. CPUs, HDDs, and RAM are easy to do, but GPUs are pretty hard.
