IdeaPad 330 - Celeron CPU

2018-09-17, 5:31 AM

This is the IdeaPad my wife bought [IdeaPad 330] and with her home business she runs, she needs a CPU speed of 2GHz (or faster). What CPU chip would you recommend swapping the original with?

Hi Chacon! 


Welcome to the Lenovo Community Forum! 


As we were checking here, some Lenovo IdeaPad 330 comes with a soldered CPU on the motherboard. You may need to open the whole base cover of the laptop first, and verify if the CPU is removable or not before you try upgrading the CPU. For more info about the laptop, you may check it here https://lnv.gy/2petiy5 and you may check if the model of the laptop has an embedded CPU. 


In addition, it didn't specify in the hardware maintenance manual https://lnv.gy/2pbJvUq of the laptop that the CPU is removable, meaning, there is a chance that the CPU of the laptop is soldered to the motherboard. Let us know if you have any other concern.
