Alright, so here's the deal.

I plan on getting a Qosimo X505-Q860 somewhat soon. This particular model comes with an i5 430m, but the "higher end" models which only really contain blu-ray as an upgrade and maybe some additional ram come with an i7 720qm.

Now I assume that the model I am getting will be able to upgrade to an i7 in the future, but I am not 100% sure.

I know that the Asus G60JX is able to upgrade to an i7, and it also comes with an i5 430m.

So I was wondering if anyone knows for a fact that I would be able to upgrade to an i7 in the future.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I think you can upgrade to an i7 but it will void your warranty

Maziar is right. You can upgrade to the mobile core I7. The only problem you may encounter is when you buy the upgraded processor it may be hard to find down the road in a few years.
