Sorry for the long story, but Im so amazed with the quality so I had to tell my story .
Now for the questions. The only thing this amazing laptop cant do Is gaming. But I plan getting a EGPU setup. But does my cpu work for some basic gaming?
Or will the I7 2620m bottleneck the [censored] out of a say Nvidia 1050 gpu? I already bought the EGPU Expresscard hardware. Still have to buy the gpu. But it would be disappointing if the CPU ruins my plans.
Second question. What more can I do to upgrade this amazing laptop ?
Thanks for reading

The CPU will not bottleneck you. The fact that the eGPU connection is a PCIe x1 might.
