And of course I can't tell you the model numbers. It was over a year ago. I can tell you that one was a Dell and the other was an Acer. Both were under 500$. I know the Dell had a 2.1 Ghz Pentium Dual Core and the Acer had a 2.3 Ghz dual core AMD. Both were in a socket that had unlock mechanisms meaning they were designed to be removed.
my old lenovo had a removeable processor, it was as thick as a house brick. also, when i came to open it to see if it was upgradeable i couldnt find anything modern that would fit.
all you could do if yours was plug in rather than solder is put another of the same generation in.
oh and my lenovo was worth **** all, in a couple of years when my macbook needs an upgrade i'll just sell it and buy a new one. the joy of apple products is that they retain a **** load of value. cant afford it? quit your moaning an be thankful you even have a computer
