I'm using an Acer® Aspire AS5253-BZ493 Notebook (LX.RD502.053).

Am I able to upgrade its processor to an i3 or i5?

  • Operating System: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • Processor: HD Internet Technology from AMD with AMD Dual-Core Processor C-50 (1.0GHz, 1MB L2 Cache)

No, your laptop uses an AMD processor which will not let you upgrade to a Intel one due to incompatible chipsets.

Thats really it. Also, laptops arn't all that easy to upgrade. On the off chance you could, it would need to be very specific types of processors – Journeyman Geek Dec 12 '11 at 7:50
