Re: Can i Upgrade my laptop?

Hi kevinsamer , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


What processor do you currently have?

Checking on the socket supported for the CPU on most variants on this model :

Intel® Celeron® Processor 2957U , Intel® Core™ i3-4030U , i5-4210U , i7-4510U all showing socket support as FCBGA. 


In a Ball Grid Array , processors are mounted in the board soldering it in making it not possible to remove thus not upgradable.  


Hope this answered your query . update us .

Re: Can i Upgrade my laptop?

Hii Spidey101 !


I have an Lenovo Z50-70 i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70Ghz 2.40 Ghz
I wonder the same thing if I can upgrade the CPU.
I dont want to buy a new Laptop because I got this Laptop from my
stepmother last christmas and laptops cost a lot for me.
If it is possible to upgrade what is the max the motherboard can handle and what does a Laptop CPU cost?

Re: Z50-70 - Can I upgrade the processor?

First off hi lenovo community^_^. I have no idea if I'm even posting this right.


Anyway I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade my lenovo z50-75 (I think mines the 50) AMD Radeon cpu,  I have no clue what model it is exactly as I don't have my laptop with  me at this moment.


I have only just started asking myself this question  after hearing a certain Capcom game being released on pc in 2018.  Thank you for your help!
