There are 10 (ten) different motherboards (MB) for the IdeaPad Z470 series depending on which CPU/GPU is used,
your upgrade is not easy to do, please see Hardware Maintenance Manual page 89 ff for more details...

Ok i downloaded the file.
So what should i do now? should i post my laptop specs ? if yes how? if no, what will i do to know if its safe to upgrade my laptop processor. or should i just stick on my i3?
btw is it possible to upgrade it up to i7? coz i saw awhile ago about this brand that it can only support i5.

Ekong... according to the information in Hardware Maintenance Manual many parts, probably including the system board MB,
would need to be changed to accommodate a i7 quad-core CPU in place of the original i3 dual-core.
I suggest you to stick with i3 CPU and if you need more power to do the work, I would buy me a more powerful laptop.
