Default Re: Need help upgrading laptop

According to the service manual:

It's supported, depending on if you already have an Intel CPU. But you'd have to make sure you're on the latest BIOS revision to make sure it would be compatible.

What CPU do you currently have? Usually laptop CPU's are quite expensive to buy as well.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
