IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?

\015 I own a IBM ThinkPad R40 with 2GB RAM 160GB Hard Drive and Intel Centrino and wanting to know If I could upgrade this to a Intel Core 2 Duo Or Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo\015

Answers :

According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
No, your motherboard does not support the Core 2 Duo family.
