is it possible to swap out the motherboard for something better? so you can use a better cpu/apu and more ram? i got one of these laptops for free for my birthday and the previous owner claimed it was for gaming, a "gaming" pc it had 4gb memory and an Intel core i3-2330m and i was thinking about upgrading it to an i5 of the same generation but now im thinking about more, a better motherboard with more vram and just higher limits, is it possible? id think it would, because almost everything in the PC aside from the monitor, motherboard and everything that goes with it is just the shell/case, but im not much of an expert so thats why im asking here


and if it is possible then are there any mb's (including 3rd party) that support more modern cpu/apu sockets? lets say one that supports atleast 16gb ram and/or a atleast 7th gen i5 or i7? (or ryzen 3 2200u [which i think is a mobile processor, idk]) thanks!
