procesor change

Hi,

I got a ideapad y460 with i3-370m procesor and ATI radeon 5650 GPU.

 

Is it posiible to change procesor to i7-840QM ?

It is using the same socket - R1, but I am not sure about woltage.

i3 is 35 and i7 is 45 watts, can it hadle this processor?

Re: procesor change

On the parts list I found that the best procesor that was used is Intel i7 620M.

It this the best it can go inside? It is a dual-core anyway.

What if I put there i7-640m? It is not on the list, but mine i3 370m is not there either.
