Hi, from what I see your laptop hasn't any thunderbolt ports..only USB 3.0 that for latency problems (and bandwidth) it doesn't worth for a eGPU investment!

The GTX 1050 is sort of considered entry level for modern games. The Gt 1030 is considerably worse (less than half the price performance index). If you went through the effort and expenditure to connect it to your laptop (which is very limited in how to connect an eGPU to your laptop anyway) you would not get anything more than low gaming performance so may not be worth the effort. To get an idea you would probably need to remove the bottom of your laptop, remove the Wifi card and plug a cable into that port PCI-MCIE (Very awkward see youtube videos on the subject search exp gdc egpu).
