It is important not to forget the m in the model number. As far as the 460m and the 540m are concerned, the 460m is the faster of the two. The 500m series seemed to focus more on lowering the power draw. The 460m probably compares to like a 8800 ultra.

^^ Sure you can. You just need a laptop with a discrete GPU (like the ones he's talking about)

A very small amount of laptops have a removable and upgradable gpu. Chances are the one he's talking about doesn't.

Yes if it is something like a GTX 485m SLI chances are it IS replaceable, however something like a GT 540m isnt usually going to be replaceable.
