I have a Inspiron n4050 with an i3-2330M processor, and recently i find out that the processor isn't soldered, it's in a socket! So i was wondering what range of processor can i buy for upgrading?
Did i have to stick in the Sandy Bridge generation or i can jump in to the Ivy Bridge?
Can i put a i5 or even a i7?
Thanks for your replying.
