There are quite a few models actually, but they are mainboards with dedicated cards (not intergrated) and are usually a found in the upper-end ($$$) bracket.

But you're right about upgrading intergrated GPUS - can't be done without replacing the mainboard.

OP, just had a look at your model - an addon card is simply not worth the effort/expense.

Yeah, I don't see the point in upgrading a laptop that cost over 1500-2000 to start with though.
It would seem more like I was intentionally creating my own money pit than upgrading at that point.
