As a general rule, laptops do not have the updating ability of desktops. A different graphics chip would probably necessitate a new mother board, power supply, not to mention the heat increase. Look for a new laptop...and, try to "build your own" from companies like Sager/Clevo rather than buying a mass produced "model number" from any of the major suppliers. Keep in mind that Sony, Toshiba, and Panasonic laptops cannot use 'generic' drivers and must always use the vendor OEM updates...which are limited. If you read enough, you will also find that 'switchable' graphics have the same problem...limited support from the manufacturer.
