Hi there, Migarasta                 -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


It is not upgradable because the GPU is soldered on the motherboard. This system is not 'that much' customizable. Even if you get the external GPU (the bay) with GT750M, it may work, but unfortunately at the GT650M's speed, because that is what you have on board. Though you may have a chance that it may not work at all.


Update us how it goes.

You can put any GPU , trough an e-GPU set-up.
theres a custom ultrabay pci-e connector, basicly put a new GPU in that and add power trough a PC power supply if it needs it.
