  1. If Dell sold the laptop with the processor with that computer, it'll support it.
    I honestly wouldn't bother - changing laptop processors is difficult and is considered a waste of time. Save your cash to build a desktop that you can upgrade much more easily!
  2. What's the power of the Brick? Also, I wouldn't even bother upgrading because it'll benefit nothing... It'll benefit nothing because it's a laptop, a CPU upgrade would be a waste, not only that, it also have low performance boost over the i3... On a destop, a jump from i3 to i7 is so huge, it's worth the money... Beside, I dont think that laptop even have a video card...
  3. it has a gt5550 3gig, but if you guys think i shuld let it be, i may build myself a desktop ;)
