Lenovo B570 Cpu Upgrade

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  4. 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-processor-upgrade-socket-pga-988-dual/219902394.html?listingId=228296416,

    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.....
  5. I don't know if there's any activity on this topic, but I hope I can get an answer... I own a B570 too, but it came already with i5 2430M 2.40 GHz, and I wonder if I can make an upgrade with this http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-3630QM+%40+2.40GHz&id=1444
