    I like the sound of Radeon Pro 5600M, now get it in something i would consider buying.

    Then again +800 British bananas, thats like all the money i plan on spending on a laptop.

    Wow that's quite some Apple tax there. You can build an entire Radeon 5700XT based gaming PC for the cost of that upgrade.

    Still it is cheaper than a monitor stand.

    That's 5700XT in an external GPU box money. Not sure why they called it 5600M - it's as wide as the 5700XT, so they could have used a higher model number

    The upgrade costs more that the actual chip is even worth, not even considering the fact that you're upgrading, not just getting an extra chip.
