This is not entirely correct. There are still laptops that use socketed cpus and MXM gpus that are upgradable. However the OPs model does use a soldered cpu and gpu so while upgrading is still technically possible with the proper equipment it's expensive and has a high failure rate.

No, you can't upgrade laptops. This is sometimes why people buy desktops. If you were a geek and knew how to then you would risk breaking it. I would recommend either buying a better laptop, pc or buying a razer core for your laptop:https://www.very.co.uk/razer-core-x-external-graphics-card-enclosure-with-thunderbolt-3-connection/1600294366.prd?sku=sku21018810&cm_mmc=google-_-PLA+-+Generic-_-Electricals+-+Laptops-_-PRODUCT_GROUP_p33751352059_&utm_campaign=Generic_Electricals+-+Laptops&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google&utm_term=PRODUCT_GROUP&gclid=Cj0KCQiAuf7fBRD7ARIsACqb8w4HGBik3JdM-jYFHRTC_D5jBBul_cSDSGPyAwlJyBLQ5j94vEXVGHkaAkGkEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
