I just bought a lenovo y70 with 860m, I wonder if I can upgrade the video card or I can only buy a new laptop in the future?

Hello Steven Bing, welcome to Toms!

Most laptop manufacturers solder in their GPU's now-a-days, so I would not recommend messing with them; it is a task meant barely for professionals.

For laptops, I do not recommend upgrades besides HDD and RAM due to the laborious task of taking the things apart, and then putting them back together. If you want something that is up-gradable, please get a desktop, otherwise just buy a new laptop every few years.

thanks!
