Specs: Windows 8.1 Pro, Intel® Core™ i7-5500U
Can I change my laptop CPU to Quad-Core because I want to get the more out of it. I'm planning to switch to the newest Broadwell-H Processor which is Intel® Core™ i7-5950HQ. If not, then what are my other options in Broadwell-H processors that is compatible with my HP ENVY - 17t Touch Laptop?

"I can't find any laptops that have Intel Core i7-5950HQ"

The CPU was just released this month, it will take a while for it to start showing up. The only laptop I could find is the MSI GT80 TITAN SLI-263 which sells for $3700. I didn't even pay that much for my Jeep or pickup, lol.

Do you currently have a i7-4720HQ or i7-5500U? Regardless, the CPU upgrade is definitely not worth the cost - currently over $600. Plus if the CPU ID isn't included in the BIOS, there's no guarantee it would even be recognized.

My current cpu is Intel Core i7-5500U. I do believe that changing the CPU will cut down the cost, isn't it? What are other CPU's that I can consider under Broadwell-H Family?

I can't find any laptops that have Intel Core i7-5950HQ as its processor that's why I'm considering to change my current CPU.
