Replace Intel Atom N450 with N550 on my HP Mini 5102
Jul 15, 2012, 5:55 AM
I am planning on upgrading my HP Mini 5102 with an Intel Atom N450 to an N550. Since the N550 uses the same chipset I believe it will work. Can any confirm that this is possible?

The intel atom is soldered onto the board (uses BGA), its not meant to be user replaceable unless you know how to desolder a CPU.
Don't bother, opening a laptop can lead to more problems and if you have a guarantee or warranty then you will void them or it.
You could upgrade RAM, that could improve performance a little.
