Since you are given options to select the GPU it should be upgradable. I would call customer support and ask to confirm the laptop uses a MXM format graphics card. That is basically like a mini PCI-e graphics card for laptops. The laptop uses desktop CPUs so the CPU can definitely be upgraded. Whether or not you can install an 8th generation "Cannonlake" CPU (expected to be released in 2nd half of 2017) remains to be seen. It will be a socket 1151 CPU like the current 7th generation "Kaby Lake" CPUs, but the laptop may need to BIOS update.

Assuming the laptop uses a MXM GPU, upgrading the GPU will likely be tricky. MXM GPUs are not sold to the general public like desktop GPUs. They are only sold to system builders like XMG. Therefore, you need to ask XMG's customer support if you can purchase a next generation nVidia GPU from them in the future. Otherwise, you will likely to have to buy them second hand from eBay or other similar websites.
