Re: Possible to upgrade CPU in Ideapad 100?

No, it's not possible to replace CPU in your laptop. Last laptops with repleacable CPUs (socketed) were in Haswell generation. You have laptop from newer - Broadwell generation.


Moreover i5-6600K is a Skylake PC's CPU. FYI there are laptops specially designed to support PC's replaceable CPUs - sadly, can't say more about them - you'll need to look for them yourself. And they are really pricey.
