    Nvidia has announced a standard for add-in video upgrades for all classes of laptops. Nvidia has said it will be an open standard so other vendors (aka ATI) can have upgrade offerings too. See the link below.

    Many mainstream laptop vendors have bought into the Nvidia standard so it looks like life is about to get much better for the portable computing crowd. :)
