I have a Lenovo G480 notebook and the current CPU is Intel i3, can the CPU of G480 be upgraded to Intel i5 or higher. If yes, which model of Intel i5 with part number should be bought ? Thanks !

Good day and welcome to the community.
Have a look at your hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g480_g485_g580_g585_g780_hmm_v1.0_english.pd...
Manual page 78 shows that the CPU is socketed, so you're in luck on that front. Beware, though, as it looks like it's a pretty major tear-down to get to it.
Manual page 101 (item 11) shows which CPUs should be compatible with your machine.
Hope this helps.
