Either get a new laptop, or your own desktop.

The thing with laptops is they aren't easily upgradable, if at all. An AMD socket on a motherboard will only work with certain AMD processors. For an Intel CPU you need an entirely different motherboard.

If you bought yourself a decent desktop, you can easily upgrade parts in the future. Pretty much the only thing's you can upgrade is RAM and storage in laptops.
