    Can i change my processor?

    Luís

      Hello guys,

       

      I'm new at this so sorry for my english or if i posted in the wrong place.

       

      I have a Acer Aspire E1-531 and i want to know if i can change the processor for one more powerfull like intel i7 (i think its the better to play games). Because this laptop have a lots of space but i think with a good processor i could run battlefield 3 and others.

      If someone can help i would be very thankfull.

       

      Thank you to everyone

          Probably not... need to contact Acer with your model number, but looks like this is a Celeron or Pentium based laptop and digging a little deeper that's all the chipset supports.

          Acer Aspire E1-531 the supported processors are: Acer Support: Specifications

          CPU and chipset1  Intel® Pentium® processor B950/B960/B970 (2 MB L3 cache, 2.10/2.20/2.30 GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz, 35 W), supporting Intel® 64 architecture, Intel® Smart Cache

            Intel® Celeron® processor B820/B815 (2 MB L3 cache, 1.70/1.6 GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz, 35 W), supporting Intel® 64 architecture, Intel® Smart Cache
