Hi, Simon Korotun,

When it comes to laptops, cpu upgrades are damn near impossibe. because the graphics card and processor are welded to the motherboard. It is extremely risky and not worth destroying you system. You are better off either buying a laptop with an i7 processor.

Thanks for the advice, unfortunately buying a new laptop isn't an option at the present time. I have also read conflicting posts as to whether the cpu would be "welded" or socketed with retaining screws, can anyone clarify this point please
