You can't upgrade the GPU in a laptop, unfortunately.

Yes, true. If you can, trade it in for one with better graphics....

Although there is something called a "VDock" that allows you to dock a graphics card in the box and connect it to the laptop and a monitor, but the cost of the graphics card and the VDock itself is so high you might as well build your own PC.
