Re: Upgrade CPU at Lenovo G480 Notebook

Good day and welcome to the community.

Have a look at your hardware manual:


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.
