Hey, so i've been thinking about upgrading my lenovo g510 cause its kind of 'stuck' with probably the worst cpu in the G- series (pentium 3550m) don't get me wrong its served me really good but i guess its time.. So i've been looking for a newer one to match the TDP (35w) but the i5/i7 counterparts (T series) are kind of expensive (300-350$ used) and a little higher wattage processors (again from haswell) are hitting up to 100$ max for a high ish end i7 CPUs . I've got my eyes on a i7 4710mq but its 12watts higher TDP and i have no clue if the laptop could handle it *also did a HDD to SSD upgrade so i have no clue if that would affect anything*. Like would the brick handle it? Would my laptop like detect and take potential of the i7?
