Dell Inspiron N7010 GPU upgrade?

I have already upgraded my i5 to and i7 but I didn't think about it when I had it open. Is it possible to put a dedicated GPU in this laptop? I know that there have been n7010 laptops with dGPUs and I want sure if it was a removable/kinda upgradable GPU or if it was soldered to the board.

Etheralrealm,

Unfortunately, it cannot support one if your system has the onboard video. The motherboard would need to be changed to one that you could add a discrete GPU. The onboard video chip is soldered to the motherboard.
