E320 CPU upgrade

#1 Post by AndehX » Sat May 29, 2021 7:25 am

Does anyone know what kind of CPU upgrades this laptop can take? It currently has an i3 in it, but I'd like to maybe put an i7 in it if possible or maybe a good i5. This information doesn't seem to be available anywhere so does anyone have any experience with this?

Lenovo's own site mentions that the E320 had the i5-2410M as one of the CPU options, so faster i5's like the 2520M, or the dual-core i7's like the 2620M and 2640M are supported.

Supporting quad-core i7's like the i7-2630QM is unknown though.
