Heck, can you change the card in most laptops? I know you guys said this one was integrated (how'd you know that, anyway?), but are there any that aren't, so an upgrade is possible?
Check these guys out:

I bought a laptop with the intention of having a portable gaming rig and now the thing is my internet machine/portable DVD pkayer for vacations/digital picture receptacle. I never play on it because my desktop is so much better. I wish I had bought a cheap laptop with a higher quality screen.

Vid cards in laptops, despite what anyone says, are not changeable. There is a standard, the MXM that is supposed to ensure that you can upgrade an MXM compatible VID card with another MXM. What no one tells you is that there are already 4 generations of MXM is 2 years: MXM1, MXM2... and they are not compatible between them. Unless you decide to change your VID card in 6 months this is not going to help, it's just PR.

I would still go for an HP. They are what I call heavy-duty lappys, can take almost anything (fall of the table, water spills, etc). I'd try to see on the HP/Compaq site if there is a way you can configure the lappy so that it has a decent Vcard, 1gig of ram and ANY CPU. I think only a Celeron could be a bottleneck for a lappy VID card but a sempron, turion, pentium, core they should be good.
