  1. well hello bhaveshgoel07,
    i dont wont to be the bad guy but its near impossible to take the parts out and put a new processor and i have a question where are you gonna get the cpu, anyway you should try to just save up and get a better laptop or even better just get a desktop where you can easily change the cpu with like one hand lol.
    btw a third gen intel cpu i3 has 4 digits and it starts with 3.
  2. negative, the Man. Tech is different. try to find a 32nm Man tech processor if you really want to upgrade.

    the manufacturing technology is the physical die size of the processors internal workings, fyi

    its not near impossible. I do it constantly at work and at home. it is just very very difficult to do so.
  4. It's not possible since they use a different CPU socket. FCLGA1155 for the i5 and PGA988 for the i3.
  5. Soz guys,
    it seems that you learn something new every day,so anyway thx for the info techguy55.
