If you want a decent upgrade, you'd need to replace mobo+CPU+ram+GPU.

Something like this, bit less than $700 will go a long way. It's simply impossible to get such performance out of a similar priced laptop. These parts will be a huge upgrade.

If you travel a lot for work and are rarely home, I'd suggest a gaming laptop. But if not, definitely go for pc upgrades + simple laptop for worky stuff.
