Default Is this possible?

Is it possible taking apart my laptop and upgrade it to a pc by buying some parts for the pc? For example i want to take apart this Sony Vaio Pcg-61313L to upgrade it to a pc.

Uh, no.

You can't upgrade the GFX or the PSU. That is set with the system.

You can upgrade the CPU, but the difference you get is slim. Not worth the money.

You can upgrade RAM, that's fine, but some have a 4-12GB limit.

It's not worth the trouble. You'd be better off just buying/building a new one.
