if someone is still out there with this 3 year old laptop, could a daring soul try swapping the i5 board (np530u3c) with the a6 or a4 one(np535u3c)?
i am quite confident that upgrading my a4 to an i5 will work.
The external ports are the same, the internal connectors are the same; the speakers, too.
The only thing that might give trouble putting an np530 motherboard in an np535 laptop would be ever so slightly different lcd model and maybe a different wifi adapter( i heard that it was intel centrino for np530u3c and my np535u3c has qualcomm atheros).
the rest is quite identical, unless the i5 version uses synaptics touchpad, which might not work on my elan. Even so, samsung's drivers for the %#*@ thing even have two separate folders for the two touchpad types, so to !&&* with it.
I just want to know if my 130$ worth of broke student money will do anything on it.
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
