No you can't. Both the CPU and the GPU are soldered to the motherboard. Some laptops do allow a CPU upgrade. Most laptops allow RAM upgrades. VERY VERY rarely can a laptop's GFX chip be upgraded. But how can the gfx card be soldered too? Because it's INSIDE the CPU. It's an integrated GPU.

Bottom line? No.

Desktop are normally infinitely customizable. Laptops and all in one PCs are not.
