View Full Version : G56jr

Hi guys, my old laptop broke down recently and I was thinking of getting a new laptop. Chanced upon the G56JR, and thought it would be a good choice for me. I'm gonna be using it for both gaming and also school, so I can't go above a 15.6" screen for portability reasons.

I know some basics but not too indepth about computer specs, so I wanted to ask, is the G56JR upgradeable? Meaning is it possible to for example, swap out its gpu with a better one in the future?

I wouldn't get one if I were you. It is just a rebranded N56JR, which in itself, is already quite old. It doesn't even come with the 800m series gpus from Nvidia. And also, to answer your question, no the 760m is not upgradeable AFAIK. I believe only the 770m, 780m etc. cards can be swapped, out, and those are on high end 17 inch computers, and a couple of 15 inch ones.

Oh okay.. in that case, are there any other laptop models that you would suggest for me? Just needs to be 15.6" and good for gaming.
