Ok so I recently bought a netbook, and my friend bought one too.

I have an Acer AO521 with an AMD Athlon II Neo k125 and he has an AMD C-50 Dual Core. Now here's both netbook benchmarks:

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-C-50-Notebook-Processor.40960.0.html for the AMD C-50

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Athlon-II-Neo-K125-Notebook-Processor.33851.0.html

If I say to you that I am a noob in computer benchmarks, which CPU is the better one overall?

My second question is:

Is my CPU removable? If it's not, is my chipset removable? (AMD M880G) Here are two photos I took for you: the CPU is the kind of square at left with a black square at the center.

Thank you everyone!

Your friend's AMD C-50 is faster because of the dual core. Your cPU is removable and you can remove the chipset.

Sorry but that must be a typo. I was meant to say the CPU can be removed but the chipset can not be removed.

I didn't see it but if you flip the motherboard around you will see the CPU cooler and under that CPU cooler you will see the processor :) Experience from taking apart different laptops! So pretty much unscrew the motherboard screws and you will see the CPU cooler along the with the CPU, if i'm right.

Ok so if I understand right, I have to take off the motherboard and flip it to be able to remove the CPU and change it. Sorry if I'm wrong, never done that before...

OK thank you for all the valuable information. Now I'm checking to buy a new CPU with the same socket (for compatibility).

My question has been answered!

Be careful when upgrading laptop CPUs. Many desktop CPUs, even of the same socket, will not work in a laptop, and even if the BIOS accepts it, they generally run hotter and can overheat causing damage to the computer. Make sure you find a mobile edition CPU compatible with your motherboard (you may have to email acer for a support list) and then hope you can find it. AMD mobile CPUs are very difficult to find.

Ya, Newegg only sells Intel mobile CPU's but they don't sell AMD mobile CPU's.
