I have a Lenovo Thinkpad G460. Its processor is an Intel Core i3 M 380. As you can tell, I'm not getting very much horsepower at all. Especially in the graphics department. The integrated graphics are making me sad.
I was hoping that it would be possible to replace the processor, upgrading to an i7, I was eyeing the 640m . However, I want to gather some information before I take on this project. First off, can these processors be replaced, or are they integrated into the motherboard? If it is possible, where would I buy a Core i7 for a laptop?
Lastly, it this whole idea just too inefficient? Would it be better to get a new computer?
