My laptop is hp1000-1140tu I want to upgrade core i3 2470m to core i5 2410m or others supporting rpga988 socket is i5-2540M, i5-2520M, i5-2510E, i5-2450M, i5-2435M, i5-2430M, i5-2410M is this upgrade possible.
Yeah, it's same socket type & both are dual core too, but your board doesn't support it. Moreover you're not going to get a major boost in performance even if board support it - I don't see any benefits.
I Understand your concern. Well as this dude is saying that its useless to upgrade it or it wont happen then its false. i upgraded mine to i5 2520M and the performance was clearly improved and it became quite fluid . I should also add that if you haven't tried something and you think it won't work you should mark it as its my theory since you didn't actually did it like this dude adding "there won't be much difference" how can you say that if you haven't tried a thing. Don't missguide people. I came to this thread looking for an i7 processor to be placed in this laptop and i stumbled on this thread. well i hope this helps
