 You should ask Dell.  Just because a newer CPU has the same socket, that does NOT mean the motherboard will support it.  I'd be extremely careful about doing this.  In fact I'd think the odds are that it would NOT work.  But who knows, maybe you'll get lucky and Dell will tell you otherwise.  Since motherboards are proprietary in laptops (unlike desktop mobos), the only way to be sure is to ask the manufacturer, in this case Dell.  Dell probably had Intel make the motherboard, but you'll never know what the exact specifications are unless you ask Dell.

 

Good luck.

 How to ask Dell?  Three ways come to mind.  The Dell web site, the Dell forums, and by phone, 1-800-WWW-DELL.
