Hello! I'm looking to upgrade my CPU in my Vostro 3350. I know to look for socket types, but besides that, is there anything else I should be concerned about when picking out a CPU? The current CPU is an Intel i3-2310M and I was looking to replace it with an i7-3920XM or i7-3940XM. Is there any other spec that matters besides socket type in a laptop upgrade?

Thanks!

Hello,

Just update your BIOS first, and ensure that the socket is the same. Also make sure that your board can support it!! (No reason why it shouldn't)
