Hello.
Today I've bought new laptop, But I feel scammed, Because I was looking for gaming laptop, But the store were all out so they sent me this laptop instead, Claiming it is same as the previous if not better.

Here the laptop's specs and name

15-da2019ne

RAM: 8 GB
CPU: Core i7 10510U 1.8 ghz up to 4.9 ghz
SATA 5400 RPM 1 TP

Here is the link full of details

The processor is great, but the rest of the specs are trash, Payed 800$ for it and yet I feel like I was scammed.


I tried to search for information about graphics card but all I got was MX130.
The store said the graphics card were upgradeable, And the price could increase if they were to swap it for better graphics card

The question is
Can I truly upgrade the graphics card? was the laptop's price justified? or is it all trash?
Should I return it?
Also does anyone know the exact laptop in amazon?
As far as dxdiag, It is detecting no graphics card what so ever
 

RTX 2080

Commendable

Laptop GPUs are not upgradable 99% of the time. Return it, that's not a gaming laptop.

Price is ok for what you got. There are better options out there though.
 
There used to a standard form factor for gpu's inside laptops that could be swapped out. But few used it in the race for small sizes, and I haven't seen it in ages.

The mx130 is a garbage option barely faster than the integrated graphics.


You're also lacking a SSD and that makes a huge diff. The cost diff between a 500 gig SSD and 1tb hdd is minimal so it shows they are cutting corners to meet a price point.

IF (and it's a big if) your laptop has a thunderbolt connection, you can use that to hook up to an external gpu box which connects to a monitor.

Gaming laptops really start at $1000 U.S.
