is there a cpu compability list for the x201? - I couldn't find one.
What I actually want to know is, if my colleague's X201 (3626-w16) is able to accept an i7-2720qm (G1, PGA988b) instead of its i5-540m (PGA988).
Solved! Go to Solution.

I was on the same line of thinking of a CPU switch, but seeing how they are sodered into the board I may change my plan.
The goal: to get the multitouch working with the 540M cpu.
The parts: 2x X201, (1x- 2985fsu [540M, no MT], 1x- 2985fcu [540UM, MT])
I was hoping to just switch the cpu, but that is apparently not an option.
Can I replace the entire screen from the FCU model onto the FSU model, or would the FSU board also not handle the Multitouch hardware if installed?
