  1. I would say no. But I could be wrong. The graphics is onboard and can not be upgraded. Thats something you have to upgrade during the order process. Thats one of the down side to laptops you got what you got besides the hard drive and memory.
  2. Without knowing the exact model number of the laptop i'd say no. Very few laptops have upgradable graphics.
