Hello, I currently have a T520 with an i5-2520 processor. I would like to upgrade this processor to an i5 dual or quad core processor, and I'm just looking for suggestions on what processors would fit/plug in directly into my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

you already have an i5-dual core CPU that can act like a quad at times. upgrading laptop CPUs is often a difficult task, why the sudden urge to upgrade a very good laptop processor?

Wow...shows how much I know haha. I've never had any issues with my processor, but when trying to install some software for a sound input/output interface, an error came up stating that my computer didn't meet the requirements. That was the only thing I could think of that seemed like a possible cause of the issue. Thanks for the info though! I'll have to do some more research and figure out what's up.
