Is this statement true "64mb of the laptops ram is used for the graphics part of the system. This is part of the specification." -Hence if you purchase a laptop with 256MB RAM only 192MB will show on system properties?
This is sometimes true based on the system. If a laptop has a graphics card built into the motherboard then it usually borrows memory from the main RAM chips.
Plug in Graphics cards usually have their own memory.
The indication that a graphics card borrows from the sytem memory is that in the Specs you are told that the Graphic memory can be ajusted in a range, i.e. 8mb, 16mb, 32mb, 64mb. Where as Graphics card with its own memory only has one memory setting.
