My System Specs

Exactly. If your laptop wasn't designed to handle the heat generated by an I7 processor, you could have serious problems, not to mention the potential problems from the upgrade itself... Upgrading a laptop is nowhere near as easy as upgrading a desktop CPU, mainly because for the most part, they weren't designed to allow for this. Why would you need to upgrade your laptop anyway since it seems you aren't maxing out the CPU utilization currently?

Btw, what make and model of laptop is it?
