HP dv6-3143us (a general question)

Hello my friends, i found a killer deal on newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834157466

I want to ask if its upgradeable to i5 later on as it has i3 370M in it by stock. Is its cpu upgradeable?

  1. Best answer
    According to the Intel spec page:
    - i3-370M is 35 W, BGA 34mmx28mm package and needs PGA988 socket
    - i5-560M is 35 W, BGA 34mmx28mm package and needs BGA1288 or PGA988 socket

    So my guess is Yes and you won't even need a new fan/heat-sink... looks like i7-640M also lies in the upgrade path.
  2. thanx for advice man, means if a laptopis i3 or i5 it canbe upgraded with any same socket dual core like i5 560m or i7 640m.
