  1. No. Those are two completely different CPU sockets. not to mention there would be compatibility issues with everything else.
  2. Sorry buddy... the CPU's are stuck on there....
  3. ^ really? i didn't know they were permanent. i thought you could swap the CPU out for another that is compatible like desktops.
  4. ah that sucks, Thanks for the info!

    Nope. Most laptops, especially low end ones, have CPUS already soldered to the motherboard for height, heat, and cost. To get one that can switch out, you have to get a very expensive, usually custom laptop.
