I wouldn't bet money on it, no -- even if the CPU works, you're putting an awfully power-hungry CPU in a very small system that may not handle the heat generated very well.

i think some laptops with HM57 chipset supports upto first generation Core i7 cpus. if so N4010 supports i7 processor?

 

anyway i just wanna know whether N4010 supports Core i5 quad core processors or not?

You can, if you're willing to pay the price (they're expensive) and lose your warranty.

Bear in mind that this system uses the older HM57 chipset  and socket G-- not the second-generation Core i HM67 and Socket G2 -- so while you can use the first-generation i5s, you CANNOT use the new Sandy Bridge second-generation i5 CPUs.
