Default Re: Trying to upgrade my laptop's processor. What do you recommend?

In other words, get used to the one you have, or buy a new one. Laptops really aren't upgradable, although there are some aftermarket notebook video cards on the market now.

I see that I got here a bit late. Seems to me that you just bought a new laptop and put it in your old case though to be totally honest. Glad it worked out for you though
I bought all pieces seperately. If I bought a new laptop the motherboard, etc. probably would not have fit inside my old case, unless I bought another dv7. And I don't believe dv7s come with an intel core 2 duo+ geforce 9600m GT :P
