Can i upgrade for i3 processor to i7 mobile
Jun 18, 2010, 12:25 PM
I was wondering if I can easily upgrade my intel i3 mobile, or is it preferred from i5, to i7 without having to change anything besides the processor?

Most likely not possible some mobile I7s have the same socket but its unlikely to work.

Thank you for your reply. For example, the i3-330 and the i5- 430 and 450 use µPGA-989 (socket) and if you look at the i7-720 is also has it. In this case would that be okay?
