Lenovo G480 (20156) Intel Celeron B830 can be upgrade?

2017-12-22, 7:59 AM

Hi, I recently brought a G480 with the B830 cpu and HDD 320GB. I have idea for doing It up to a nicer spec.


First I replace the HDD with SSD 512 GB and removed the DVD Drive with HDD 2TB. And I would installed 16gb 1600mhz DDR3 ram. The first upgrade have made a massive improvement. And I think if I upgrade the RAM, it will make massive improvement.


Now I want to upgrade the CPU/GPU. Now I know I can't add a dedicated GPU but I want to upgrade to a CPU with HD4000 built in.


The laptop is well in spec to take up 35W TDP and dualcore CPU's along with running a HM70 chipset makes for a lot of options.


Am I right in thinking to upgrade the proccessor? to i5 or something newer? Will it work? or am I limited by bios? Thankyou so much.
