Upgrade Options for Laptop Core i3 Tags: CPUs Laptops Core Intel i5 Last response: January 26, 2010 1:00 AM in CPUs Share letiferanimo January 25, 2010 5:51:26 PM So I am about to buy a new Toshiba laptop: http://www.toshibadirect.com/td/b2c/cdetland.to?poid=46... While I know the Core i5 is quite a bit better than the i3, at the moment I don't see needing more power than the i3 offers. I will be doing C# developing and web browsing. I was assuming that eventually the core i5 laptop processors would be available direct to consumers and I could upgrade then, am I right that this should be viable? Also, I was wondering whether it's possible without extreme modifications to add in discrete graphics in a couple of years as well?
