So I have a Samsung laptop with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz, but I'd like to upgrade to a i5-4xxx+, mainly to run an Elgato game capture, my laptops model is 300E5E-S01, my system information says my laptops model is 300E5EV/300E4EV/270E5EV/270E4EV/2470EV/2470EE though.
Hopefully someone can let me know if it can be upgraded or not, thanks!

dont think it is upgradable, main reason for that is because it is using bga socket, aif you dont know what bga socket is, bga is type of socket for processor and bga processor is soldered to the motherboard. and even though if its upgradable it would be hard to get the suitable processor because of the socket difference
