Hi, I have an Intel i3-7100 processor. I wonder if I can add it to the machine Lenovo C200 all in one. And how the RAM memory theme would look. Thank you very much in advance. Best regards.

Hi. I'm afraid not. The Lenovo C200 uses an old generation Intel Atom D525 processor.  These are low powered (13w) processors that were aimed at ultra small desktops and mobile.  They are soldered on to the motherboard (using a socket called BGA 559) and are to all intents and purposes, not upgradeable.  The i3-7100 is much more powerful desktop processor (both in terms of performance, and the power it draws and heat it puts out) which uses Socket 1151.  It's not compatible.

No, the C200 uses a proprietary motherboard and mounting system which is not compliant with ATX motherboards.

Yeah it's not going to use a normal form factor.  If you are interested in a very small system that will take the i3-7100, things like the Asrock Deskmini may be worth looking at.  I have one (build shown here) - https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/648468/walkthrough-of-mini-pc-build-with-pictures/ .  They can be VESA mounted on the back of a suitable monitor for a virtual all in one system.

How much ram does it have?  I have an Acer same basic specs, I got a decent boost upping the ram.  It will soon have an SSD, that should make it even more tolerable.

Thank you all very much. I contacted the Lenovo support and was told that there is no way to change it even changing the motherboard. Greetings to all and happy New Year.
