Nope, only high end gaming laptops normally allow the changing of GPU's.

I don't think so, but hey, you can find high-end gaming laptops for a descent amount, interested? this is a SUPER high-end gaming laptop : http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite.... I was gonna buy this but i preferred a desktop over it. cheers!


Nice!

btw, hint: This is better than most of the alienwares, as alienwares tend to be overpriced for nothing... lemmi explain. the alienware is flashy, has a nice keyboard and if you were to build it, wouldn't cost you about 1,700$ as a desktop, not laptop!!! (wjile the alienware, of course costs a lot more) If i were to have 10,000 bucks lyin' around, i would not get an alienware, I would get a desktop with gtx Titan x4 sli and some hardcore processors and hardcore psu, not a stupid laptop that is overpriced like madness!!! good luck for choosing the right pc.

this is one is indeed a good looking hi powered laptop.. this will definitely be able to run most of the games now. But I do also must agree that desktop is still a better choice for gaming. cheaper and upgradeable. the only thing most people dont choose desktop is because, it aint mobile.

I chose desktop for performance and hardware are easier to change, and Idont like heating issues.
