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?

Depends on how the graphics is set up and no, it does not apply to all systems.

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.
