Re: i have a question about processors on my G50-80

According to the specifications listed in the user manual and maintenance manual the CPU in your unit is soldered to the motherboard, and as such is not capable of being upgraded or replaced.

If you are looking for better performance, try increasing your system memory (RAM) or moving to a SSD disk.

Good luck.

There are ways to improve performance that can help a bit, but not as much as a CPU update.  If you are finding the notebook is under powered for you specific use, consider "donating" it to family member or selling it to a freind that it would be useful and then purchase a replacement that has the features and speed that better suites your use.

 

Cheers.
