Hello everybody.

Who knows with wich i7 processor i can replace my i7 720Q?
I want the best possible for the socket i got (G1, 1366)
I got now a 720QM 1.6ghz I7 running, with the one i found having 2.2ghz i7.

I found one 940QM I7 for my socket, but i also read somewhere that there is another one wich is better.

It needs to be for a laptop ;)

sorry i dont know.
i've never come across a laptop where the CPU could be changed. i just assumed they were the same as desktop CPU's.
can you definitely switch out your CPU? nowadays there BGA (soldered to the board) rather than PGA (pins and socket).

I got pins and a socket.
Only my videocard is welded on...

I already got my processor of my laptop, since i had another i7 processor from my other laptop. But it was a 2nd gen i7 instead of 1st gen.
Didnt fit ;)
