You can only upgrade the SSD / HDD. Most laptop also allows you to upgrade the RAM, but for this laptop it is soldered in. Everything is also soldered in a well like the CPU and the GPU.

If you want a laptop that allows you to upgrade the GPU, then you will need to get a gaming laptop that cost $1,400+ and only specific laptop models will allow you to do so. The vast majority of laptops with dedicated GPUs will have them soldered into the motherboard.
