Default Intel i-series processors: what does the SLBUK or SLBLR mean?

Hi Guys.

In my search for motherboards and processors for laptops, I keep coming across the acronyms attached to Intel i-series processors.

Can anyone let a simpleton like me know what they mean?

Are motherboard CPU sockets pretty much standard these days? For example, if I had a Sony Vaio E-series motherboard, can I select any Intel CPU built for laptops?

Thanks

Ben

It's called the S-Spec #.

Specification (S-Spec) number

It's basically the identification # for that particular model of Intel CPU.

You'd firstly need to see if your CPU is even removable - some lower end laptops solder the CPU onto the board, so they're not replaceable.

Assuming it IS actually a socket, you'd need to find out what socket you're running to find what series is compatible. Then you'd need to find if you can even upgrade CPU's - because if it's not supported by the BIOS, your system won't boot.
