Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I just bought a 2014 model refurbished HP EliteBook 850 G1 featuring a 15.6" LED Display, Intel i5, 16GB RAM, 2 TB HDD. Is it possible to upgrade the processor

No, you have to buy new motherboard with CPU embedded, that means buy new machine

Sorry @VarunGirvacis

 

But you would have to replace the system board to do any CPU upgrade.

 

Your manual here.
