@omidn73 as @lpfaff1 pointed out it is possible to upgrade the CPU .Things to keep in mind:Socket,TDP, BIOS and RAM Support, plus sometimes the Chipset. Also make a note of the heat given out and heat sink used.You dont want to melt that puppy , also remember that the power demands for a i3 are a lot less than the i7. So your power supply will need to be upgraded as well Your best bet for finding a compatable cpu will be from Sony support . Hope this helps

I thought so!


@lpfaff1 It can be done ....but really would you? the amount of things that would need to be addressed it would probably be easier to upgrade by buying a new laptop . But then again more power aruuhh


@jimfixer , Yes new is the easy way, depends on the availability of parts, like sourcing from a used, would be fun to try, for me it would come down to $$$, Heck I would be happy with an I3 !


@lpfaff1 My son works for a movie visual effects company in TO . Hes a system admim . They've been upgrading there render blades from second gen i7 to new xeon possessors so Ive been getting a boat load of these motherboards and upgrading desktops for family and friends most have like 24gb of memory . there old tek for that industry but man do they make for a powerful desktop. one of the older blades actually had 2 processors and 64 gb of memory . Amazing what some people will through out.


@jimfixer , what can I say but WOW! That sounds very impressive, not only the machines your building, your sons job to, the stuff/knowledge they must have for that field. i7/24gb ram :-0 Dream machine, I bet your family and friends appreciate you! Your right, it has become a throw away society and unbelievable what actually is disposed of. Have a good evening.
