Hello, Thank you for your answer, what is better between a Ivy bridge and a Sandy Bridge ? I just want to use my TPedge for Traktor dj software & Maschine sequencer for Live mix in same time !

Hello, I just have the same reflexion than you, beetween a i3 & i5 it's better to upgrade directly to the i7, I just mounting a SSD I need to test the new CPU usage in hard condition, before I does have occasionnaly CPU pic in software ( when loading a new track for exemple ) !
I'm very impressed to see that I can upgrade CPU on this laptop it's a big + for you ;-)

You won't be able to upgrade your 380M to an Ivy or Sandy Bridge processor because they have different sockets. (2nd and 3rd gen processors have the same socket). However you'll still be able to upgrade it to a i5 or i7 as long as its a first gen (with a G1 socket).

Does it mean that I can upgrade Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge with the same TDP without any issue? I searched any info about that but without succes. My core i3-2310m have PPGA988 socket, but i7-3520M (for example) have FCPGA988. Does it can be upgraded?

I'm not entirely sure about that one but I would upgrade to a processor with the PPGA988 just to be on the safe side. CPU-World is a good place to learn about processors and their sockets. Sorry I couldn't help much. However there are some pretty decsent i5 processors with a PPGA socket.
