-PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!- I am an aspiring producer who is looking for a nice good speed laptop to run FL Studio without the lags and skips. My mom purchased this Toshiba Satellite for me but unfortunately got the wrong model. The processor in this laptop is very slow for the program (being a Intel Celeron CPU 1037U @ 1.80GHz processor). I was wondering for the sake of saving money, If it is possible to upgrade or replace this processor with a faster one?

Best solution

Technically it is possible to upgrade a laptop processor, however there are a lot of items to consider and it is not a consumer replaceable item... meaning you void the warranty.

Items to consider are max CPU motherboard supports, if you need a better CPU fan, heat generation of the new CPU, who will be performing the work and what happens if you mess up.

You should just return the laptop to the vendor your mother purchased it from.

If you can, it would only be within that same line of CPU. Won't get any real difference.

No problem if you can find same socket or same pin type of your Celeron processor. please visit intel website to find this same socket.
