I have a lenovo b570 laptop running the intel b960 cpu. The mainboard is a lenovo emerald lake. I was wondering if this laptop can handle an i5 or i7 upgrade or would i have to go with an i3 or if an upgrade is even possible on this model?
Any info is greatly appreciated

You could probably upgrade it to an i7-3520M, keep in mind that it is not quad core.
Or any Intel laptop CPU that uses 35W.

Does that also work with B950 Pentiums? Because I have a Pentium Dual-Core B950 Processor...... And I'm hoping to upgrade to Core I3 or I5 soon...... But I don't want to spend more than $100 On a better Processor.....

In short.... I'm on a Budget and need some tips....

Yes, it does work with B950s.

Keep in mind that you may have to spend more than $100 for an upgrade. i3's are a $50-$100 each and i5's can be $100-$200 each.

Thanks for the Note..... I have found an Intel Core I5 Processor I can put on My Laptop here: http://www.buy.com/prod/intel-core-i5-i5-2520m-2-50-ghz...,

But I'm planning to make the Purchase if Necessary (Say, My Processor has anymore problems with a 750 GB Hard drive upgrade I'm getting soon)

and That I may need some Instructions on How to replace the Processor in Properly.....
