I am attempting to breath some new life into an older machine that I have. It is an
HP Pavilion g7-1077nr Notebook PC
It is currently running on an Intel Pentium P6200 and 8Gb of RAM. I want to upgrade to a SSD or SSHD and swap out the processor. Any ideas on what processor I should go for that will swap right out. I also am looking to simply clone my current OS drive to the new ssd or sshd to save some funds and not have to reinstall my OS. I looked into it a little and it seems that the Core i7 640M seems to be the best I can find that will swap out to the same socket and architecture.
Any and all opinions are welcome and helpful.
