Can you please remove that awful formatting? That way I can read the question better.

I don't think the CPU will be enough. I don't think you can upgrade CPU in that laptop. And potentially that GPU too.

There usually isn't much of a upgrade path for laptops.

Depending on the ports (I'm just shooting in the dark here) probably the most you'll get is an eGPU, which is quite a waste on a computer like that. And that's only if it has the ports.

what about is small port ??

IMG_3863.JPG

That is a FireWire 800 port, slower than USB 3 and no one really uses it anymore.

Pretty much. That's just an old business laptop anyway. Keep it though for basic web browsing and stuff.
