    I recently purchased an HP zv6007 with a 128MB ATI Radeon Xpress 200M -PCI Express video card. I have few questions regarding its ability to be upgraded.

    In the future, will I be able to swap the chip because of its PCI Express nature? Basically, are notebook PCI Express slots upgradable?

    Also, I believe that my AMD Athlon 64 3200 is a full-sized chip. Will I be able to change to a more powerful processor if needed?

    Thank you for any assistance.

    What Is an ExpressCard?
    An ExpressCard is a next-generation, high-performance PC Card.
    Like standard PC Cards, ExpressCards are designed to conform
    to the standard specifications of the Personal Computer Memory
    Card International Association (PCMCIA).
    An ExpressCard cannot be used in standard PC Card slot. An
    ExpressCard slot is available on select models.
    Selecting an ExpressCard
    ExpressCards use one of 2 interfaces and are available in 2 sizes.
    The ExpressCard slot supports both interfaces and both sizes. For
    example, you can use
    ■ An ExpressCard with either a USB interface or a PCI Express
    interface.
    ■ A full-size ExpressCard, called ExpressCard/54 1, or a
    smaller ExpressCard, called ExpressCard/34 2.
    The ExpressCard procedures described in the following sections
    are the same for both interfaces and both sizes. " So it looks like you have some upgrade-ability
