HP Elitebook 8470P Dual Core to Quad Core upgrade, it support???

HP Recommended
HP Elitebook 8470P
Already saw differents answer but never by the one guy that say.. "Yes, i already upgrade my dual core cpu to quad core in my elitebook 8470p"

I saw documents with info from hp with "3610qm 3630qm 3720qm and 3740qm" support for 8470p and 8570p models in this forum.

There in JUNE 2012, The product overview:

http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c03373336

Said only 3610qm and 3720qm are compatible with the 8470p.

But recently document i saw from hp (and i think is the reference guide more actual, january 2013 ) to 8470p and 8470w models like this:

http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c03659338-3.pdf

there is not clear, even this document show that only 8470w support quadcore and for 8470p show only dual core models..

so i need confirmation before buy quad core model, anybody can confirm if its possible??

Thanks a lot

Hi,

 

HP Elitebook 8470P is a series of many models/products of laptops and can spread over few years. Very hard to answer because we don't know which year is for your machine.

 

Lately HP gives G1, G2, G3 ..... for some series that give us more information.

 

The document in front of me now dated June 2013 gives another side of the picture
