Hey Guys,

 

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.

It's not possible to upgrade a laptop CPU typically. A SSD swap should be possible though.

I thought that also. However, when I looked up the specs on the P6200, one of the only pros it had was that it was easily replaceable.

Why I said usually lol. I am still unsure whether it would be worth it to upgrade the CPU rather than finding a replacement used laptop.
