    Is there ~any~ way to upgrade my intergrated graphics?
    I have a 2011 macbook pro. Is there any way to improve the graphics card, like an external graphics card port (if it even exists); or anything?

    Or how about this: is there a way I can "connect" my desktop and the laptop together so it uses the laptops CPU/RAM/etc but use the desktops graphics card?

    Sorry, nothing of the sort. If you wanted to use the desktops power you could use a VPN client or something.

    No. With notebook/laptops what you buy is what you get. You can't really upgrade anything besides the RAM and the Storage device.

    Sure, absolutely. Just purchase a new machine with faster graphics.
