Specs: Windows *.!
Does anyone know if the cpu on this little pc is it soldered on the motherboard or removable ? If it's removable I would like to buy an I5 cpu for it on ebay I seen them go for 38 dollars. If anyone has opened this Asus VIVO and knows I would appreciate it. Here is the link to the one I bought VivoPC VM40B

The mainboard may not support i5 even if existing CPU is removable, so you could be wasting $38. You can't just upgrade the CPU & expect it to work. In many cases a BIOS update may be required from the PC or board manufacturer.

✔ Best Answer
If you look at the PC specs, then dig up the CPU specs, you'll see the power supply only puts out 65W, the Celeron wattage is 17W, & the CPU socket is FCBGA1023. I couldn't find anything about the CPU being soldered-in or not & I have no idea if the board or BIOS supports other CPUs, but I highly doubt you'll find a replacement for just $38.
