HP ProBook 4520s Upgrade

hey guys,

I've had my Laptop for 4 and a half years now and it currently has: CPU: CORE I3-380M RAM: 2GB + 1GB HDD: WD Black2 (I already upgraded the storage after changing the Seagate drives 5 or 6 times in the past 3 years)

The things I am thinking of getting: CPU: i5-580M or i7-620M RAM: 2x4GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM SO DIMM 204-pin

Is there anything else that I can upgrade in this laptop in any way or this is pretty much what it can handle. Am I getting something wrong with the CPU or RAM upgrade?

Cheers,

CaptainYanev.

Is it even possible to upgrade your CPU in your laptop? You can upgrade your RAM but about your CPU they use another socket, they are too old of generation. Normally we talk about upgrading desktops, not laptops.

Yeah, I thought the CPU was pretty much soldered in or something and the most one could change in a laptop was RAM and HDD

Laptop upgrades = new laptop, no?

Probably I guess...

It is possible and it's a good way to extend your old buddy's usefulness for a couple of more years :)
