Lenovo ideapad u510- cpu upgrade

Hi guys, so i just decided to upgrade the CPU in this notebook, as intel core i3 with 1,8GHz is not enough for me right at this moment and would like to get i5 so everything will run smoother. The question is: is it even possible? I upgraded the RAM memory in this notebook already, it was easy to put it into the socket but are there even some CPUs available for laptops and how can they be replaced if they exist? Thanks for any advance.

Your CPU appears soldered to the system board.

Hardware maintenance manual shows no CPU removal instructions.

Service training video shows heat sink removal, Look at the CPU/ thermal paste.

Also look at the system board removal.

You would have to replace the system board for faster processor.

Does that mean it's gonna be way more expensive than just buying the CPU?

As I stated, soldered to motherboard. You cannot buy the CPU item alone.

You have BGA- ball grid array processor.

HMM, page 69, item 5, processor BGA.

So a MB with I5 processor will work fine?

And we're back...
