i was given an old thinkpad (two actually one is an sl410 and one is an l420) neither where working but i was lucky enough to have an old hdd lying around and to my surprise i was lucky enough that that was the problem with the sl410. it booted (yay me!) ...now i have a thinkpad sl410 running windows 7 with a core 2 duo and 8gb ddr3 ram. (great) ...as a curious person with a screw driver i opened the l420 to find a core i5 (whooo buddy that'd be nice) ..my question is can i swap the core 2 duo from the sl410 out with the core i5 from the l420? this would be of much help as i can not afford to buy or build a nice system. both laptops look exactly the same but i'm sure that doesn't matter lol ...please give me good news
