Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 Processor change !

Hello everybody, just about a couple of months back I bought the Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 with the Pentium B940 2.00 GHz processor mounted and I wonder if there is any chance I can change that. If there is please inform me and it would also be good if you could tell me which processors I can use. Thank you !

hi jimiethefox.
it may be possible to upgrade he cpu but upgrading it will void your warranty. if you still want to upgrade, please, let us know which chipset you have.

Re: Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 Processor change !

Unfortunately, Core i7-2630QM and 2670QM is not sold in a retail box since they're for OEM. Only the faster Core i7-2720QM and Core i7-2760QM is being sold with a box at a suggested retail price of USD $378. Street price should be around $350 or lower.

Lenovo Y470: i7-2670QM | 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce GT 550M | 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD | ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Network Adapter | Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
