I'm thinking about upgrading my Core Duo processor, but can't find any info on which newer ones would be compatible. Ultimately I'd like to put an i7 in there, but I'm not sure if it would be recognise it or not.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

TIA

Unfortunately, you can't upgrade the CPU on the vast majority of laptops(if any). And even if you could, a core i7 wouldn't work on your laptop because Core 2 Duo CPU's use a different socket, so you would have to change the whole motherboard which can cost as much money as getting a new laptop.

Your best option would be to purchase an i7 based laptop.
