G580 CPU Upgrade to I7 3612QM Possible?

Hello, I'm currently running a I3 3120M on my G580, model 20150. My question is whether if I can upgrade my CPU to a I7 3612QM, the G2 socket model, and how much will battery life be affected by the I7?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi

 

Welcome To Lenovo Community

 

As per the technical specification link you can upgrade to 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3520M

http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/tech-specs/laptop/essential/g-series/g580/

 

 Battery backup will not be having much difference

 

Do give this a try and let us know  

 

 

 

Hope This Helps

Cheers!!!
