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.

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
