My recommends for a laptop would be to see what in that exact same model line was an optional upgrade. Look to see if that proc was one of them, on that exact motherboard and with that exact power supply/brick. If so, go for it. If not, I wouldn't do it personally. If you do find a listed manufacturer optioned upgrade, stick with that.

Otherwise, can you really afford to brick the laptop or is this for fun to see if you can do?

hola, te puedo comentar que ando en las mismas que tu con lo del TPM, misma incognita.
tengo otra laptop, una acer 5745, venia con un procesador i3 350m y le puse un i7 620m y funciona de lujo.

quiero hacer lo mismo con la vaio sve que tengo, solo me detiene la misma interrogante.
como nota le puse el core i7 de la acer a la vaio y no funciono a pesar de ser el mismo socket. mi opinion es que se debe al gpu, el i7 de la acer hd y el de la vaio es hd3000.

comenta si lo lograste
