That links just goes to the MSI homepage. Also most laptop GPU's are integrated into the motherboard and as such, Upgrading or replacing just the GPU is usually not a possibility.

Hrmm, Yeah I found that lappy for $300 on craigs, but being the ati fanboy I am I wanted to put a ati gpu in it.. So yeah, It has dedicated graphics but was just wondering if anyone has messed with that laptop and could tell me if its replaceable.

Too much time and effort even if it is possible with that particular laptop. It's not possible with most (GPU is integrated onto motherboard).
At long last...
