Hi, im in the process of getting a new laptop for gaming and ive been looking at one that oi really like and thats the Toshiba Satelite L50-A00V. And i was wondering how upgradable the laptop is? I wouldnt mind eventully upgrading the graphics Card and RAM? So if anyone knows about this, i would appreciate the help.
The CPU can be upgraded since it is socket FCPGA946. However, that depends on if the BIOS will recognize a CPU model above the i7-4600MQ. If Toshiba offer the same basic laptop with more powerful Core i7 CPUs, then i would be inclined to say yes you will be able to upgrade the CPU. If a CPU was installed and the BIOS does not recognize it then either the laptop will not boot up or the CPU will run at lower speeds.
If the CPU socket had the letters BGA, then it would not be upgraded because BGA basically means the CPU is soldered directly into the motherboard.
