Hi I made a laptop on PCSpecialist and its a bit expensive but i was on to live support and the gpu isn't soldered so its upgradeable so is cpu
it has
i7-4700mq 2.40 GHz
gtx770m 3gb DDR5
8GB of Ram ddr 3
full 1080p(1920 x 1080)
500gb Hd
120 Sata
Plus 3 year warranty its 1,200 euro about 1500$ its more expensive than Lenovo or Msi etc but upgradeable gpu and cpu gives it value as i need laptop for about 4 years ?
Is it worth it ?

As long as they sell compatible mobile GPUs....

In 2 years the 780m will be outdated....the 900 seires will probably be here. I would settle for what you need right now (760m-770m) and then further down the road upgrade it.

Hope this helps :)

While mobile CPUS can be upgraded, don't count on being able to upgrade your GPU - even if it isn't soldered. Since most laptops have a soldered GPU you will find it very difficult to even find mobile GPUs for sale. If you want to save money, go with a less expensive CPU not GPU

Thanks for the reply I rang them they said that the GPU is upgradeable and they sell Mobile gpu's and i've seen them on ebay its only because I rather spend 300 on a GPU then over 1000 on a new laptop in 2 years when the GPU is getting older as I need it for college and gaming ex BF4, Ghosts and Black Flag will i lower the cpu and get the gtx780m ?
