Processor swap for T520

2013-02-02, 23:27 PM

Hi,  I currently have a T520 with an i5-2520 processor.  I would like to upgrade to a quad core i5 (possibly an i7), and I'm just looking for recommendations on processors - something above 3 GHz would be great too.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

quad core i5? That only exists on a desktop class CPU. Here is the list of the CPU upgrade.
