    Hi this my first post!

    I have a HP Mini 110 3101SA and I am looking to upgrade the CPU. I know how to disassemble the actual net book, but I am not sure whether or not I am able to upgrade the processor. I've heard some Intel atom cpu's are soldered to the socket. The CPU my net book currently has is an Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz. The CPU I had in mind to upgrade to is an Intel Atom processor D525, its a dual core 1.8GHz processor.

    Intel® Atom™ processor D525 (1M Cache, 1.80 GHz)
    Cache 1M
    Clock Speed 1.80GHz
    Number of Cores 2
    Series/Family Atom
    Socket Type FCBGA559
    Stepping B0

    Any feedback would be great and thanks for looking!

    Laptops in general aren't good candidates for processor upgrades. Netbooks even less so. Heat and power risks are magnified. Given the low price point, basic compatibility is a concern.

    Netbooks aren't designed to be tweaked and modded.
