T420 CPU Upgrade

Hello:

I have a ThinkPad T420 with an i5-2520M processor. However, in the Lenovo parts list for this machine, it list several different CPUs. One of them is an i7-2620M. Does this mean that I can replace the old i5 with an i7?

Thank you.

Re: T420 CPU Upgrade

Since the processor is socketed (PGA) and not soldered on to the board, you should be able to upgrade it. Make sure to update your BIOS prior.
