No, the CPU according to model number is socketed. And a 4710 i7. Honestly, there is only 2 chips better, a 4810 and a 4930. the 4810 is only a few hundred mhz above this and that's whats in the GT70 series now.

But the 4930k chip, is a few hundred mhz above that, and costs about $1000 chip alone.

The 4710 is more of a chip than you will ever 'need'. Any upgrades from now til 4 years from now (straight performance wise) shouldn't/wouldn't yield a big enough gain to upgrade the chip.

The graphics are typically the only thing ever upgraded inside the laptop. And even those are typically only 'needed' based on gaming performance every 3-4 years.

Well intels baytrail will also be out by end of year. Might as well wait for that to.

I'd take an Asus jz over msi.

Bottom of msi all open, Asus pretty sealed. Battery on Asus externally removable.
Keyboard on Asus more solid keys better typing, for me at least. Plus this is msi's first go, Asus not so much as theve had dual configs for 4+ years now
