sadly no
laptops are not very upgrade friendly. you can replace a cpu or ram, hard disk drive but not the graphic card. its integrated into the motherboard

No, many premium laptops have dedicated graphics cards.
They tend to cost more than laptops with just integrated graphics though.

Or maybe..... yes, by a small amount.
Changing the game resolution or changing the game's graphics/audio settings.

So G475 Is More of surfing the net rather than playing Games?

G475 is good for home office / home entertainment / schoolwork type workloads.
For gaming it would have to be a poor choice because of the IGP.
