A:AnswerNVME is a type of SSD. M.2 is the interface used by a NVME SSD drive. This is actually quite a deal for the hardware included. The drive is a very small part of this cost. This is a VERY capable laptop and well worth the price.
A:AnswerIt will still use the 6800M while using the laptop's screen but the signal is routed through the integrated graphics as well which is where the performance hit comes from. When you connect an external display the IGP is bypassed altogether(what a dedicated MUX would accomplish). The memory timings of the stock RAM are loose so there is a performance hit from that as well. RAM is fixable, lack of MUX is not.
A:AnswerYou will need to change the ram. It'll get you around 15% increase performance, also if you have an external monitor plug into that. You'll get an increase of like 10%. The timings can be found on Jarrods channel on youtube.
