  3. Could you elaborate on "Normal i7 quad"
  4. Technically you can upgrade. The i5 560M uses a Socket G1 / Socket rPGA988A I am pretty sure with rPGA you can replace or upgrade, rBGA is soldered in. I could be mixing it up and rPGA is soldered in and not rBGA.. It would have to be the same generation so Intel Core mobile i3,i5,i7 first generation. It really depends on the laptop as well. I have not really upgraded CPU's on a laptop ever But some of them are a process to get at. This is just of the stop of my head and I did not look at the manual or model no. yet
