I doubt you can upgrade the video card.
Just because it says AGP doesn't mean it can be removed.
It can just be using AGP technology.
I have never heard of a laptop with a removable video adapter.

is a 4mb video card good enough to watch DVD movies on?

I guess you could. I would think it depends more on the graphic card's quality and speed.

It looks like video is embedded, and not upgradable, as with most notebooks. here is the link to ibm support and product info for it:
