    Cool
    I don't think you can upgrade the graphic card on any laptop. I believe it is part of the main board.

    The graphics card is integrated into the logic board, there is no way to upgrade it

    Laptops aren't very effiecent when it comes to gaming. They aren't as powerful as a desktop. Which is why good gameing laptops costs 3x-4x as much as a good gaming desktop.

    What he said.

    In general it is not economical to put all of your resources into a "Gaming Laptop", it's just not practical. You could spend nearly five thousand dollars on a top of the line gaming laptop, but what have you really spent the money on? Certainly not the raw power, but more along the lines of the compression of the hardware so that it can fit into a small chassis.

    So first, you've spent the extra for that micro (but "l33t") video card even though a more powerful one exists for cheaper for the regular sized PC market.
    Second, you are extremely limited to substantial hardware upgrading. To do any type of significant (referring to processor or gpu) upgrading, you generally need to purchase an entire new machine
