  1. everything i could find on it shows that you can upgrade to a quad
  2. i can't find a damn thing =/
  3. It's got an Intel G43 chipset on the motherboard, Socket 775, it can hold a Core 2 Quad.
  4. Upgrading a CPU always results in an increase in dissipated heat. Portables are NOT designed with that kind of headroom in their cooling systems especially thin ones. I would be cautious if I were you. I trust you know that the only performance increases you will see by adding cores is in multi threading applications.
  5. thanks appreciate the help
