In a laptop almost allways the video card is soldered to the mobo wich means that we cannot upgrade it but I saw the AGP 4x thing beside your video card in teh specs sheat wich is confusing me a little...

Are you planing on building a pc or something of the sort? If you plan on upgrading go ahead and sell that laptop. At 4 years I would highly suggest if you can to upgrade.

As far as value my guess would be somewhere in the in the 500-600 dollar range.
