The 2630QM shipped in this model and should work - the 2760QM may, but may not be supported, as it was not shipped in this model.

Somewhere in old comercial I see Vostro with i7-2670QM, but there is no big difference between i7-2630QM, about ~7%. I'm thinking to upgrade it, but don't know how much performance I get from it. Maybe better get ssd or more ram?

An SSD (vs. a conventional hard drive or hybrid drive) will do far more for the system overall than any CPU or RAM upgrade will.

I had i3 2310M (vostro 3750 without dedicated gpu) and upgraded successfully to i7 2670QM.

I am using Windows 10 and tried also on Ubuntu 17.04.
