Folk ask about changing CPU and GPU on laptops.

Most of the time it's no. And today's models it's even more unlikely as the CPU and GPU chips are soldered in versus using a socket. You can see Dell showing off this soldered in chips at https://imgur.com/gallery/w2AxfLf

When you're shopping for your first laptop (still a lot of folk doing this) remember it's nothing like your desktops.
