Can the included Intel Celeron N3050 processor be swapped out for an i3? Is it in a socket? Is the fan big enough to cool a new processor?
Thanks for any info!

Good day and welcome to the community.
Looking at the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_flex_3_1120_flex_3_1130_hmm_201503.pdf there's no indication that the CPU is socketed (vs soldered to the system board, which is common for this class of machine). Pages 62-64 show the various system boards (item #7), with their configurations. There are no "i core" processors listed.
Hope this helps to clarify.
