Default External Graphics Card(s) ?

So since there is so little space inside a laptop for things like graphic cards and whatnot, is there such thing as an external graphics card yet? Since changing the graphics card inside a laptop is so difficult if possible at all, why arent we able to buy a high end graphics card and simply have it used on the outside of the laptop, overriding the inside one.
