I have the same question too. Since I have sony Vaio DESKTOP-N35L4II PCG-71913l i3 2gen serca 2011-2018, I want to know if it is possible to upgrade the processor.


Hi @maulene amarante

Please verify the model number?

Can't find any info when searching for a N35L4ll and the PCG-71913l series is a laptop PC and not a desktop PC and there are 75 different variants for it.

Is there a VPCEG1, -EH1, EJ1 or -EL1 number shown anywhere on the information label?

Laptops of this era are a hit-or-miss when it comes to CPU upgradability, so if they have a socketed CPU, it often only allows a narrow degree of upgrade, mainly due to their heatsinks, which can’t be upgraded.

However, the general rule of thumb in my books are:
-ALL MacBooks don’t have easily upgradable CPUs, as they are soldered

-Most windows laptops (circa 2004-2011) that that screens bigger that 13” have socketed chips, and can be upgraded

- Most windows netbooks (those really tiny laptops) have soldered chips, and can’t be upgraded

- Most windows laptops (2013-present) have soldered CPUs, besides a few Desktop Replacement Machines (aka huge laptops with desktop CPUs)

Even most modern "desktop replacements" are a crapshoot; most of them use a HK processor or a very high-end H series CPU/Ryzen APU+high end graphics, not desktop CPUs.

What I want is a modern machine with old school Dell durability, like the E6400-6440 where they use magnesium for strength, and an aluminum LCD lid with structural support on the 6420-6440 (6400/10 were mostly magnesium) and full modularity, with high end graphics options. Yes, I know it will be a healthy 5-6lbs to get that (and not cheap!) but bring back the workhorse bricks. If the millennials want "thin and light", fine -- but some of us still want a well-built machine which can look like it went through a lot 10 years in, without taking a beating beyond cosmetics.

Leave the DVD drives in 2010/11, but bring back the build quality. If it wasn't for Lenovo's shady past, I'd totally get a P50 with the 4K IPS DCI-P3 screen. Those are everything we lost to the thin and light generation. These days, Lenovo has old school build (but can't be trusted) and HP kept 95% of the brick build some of us STILL want. In addition, Lenovo solders the RAM on most of the newer T series machines, or part of it; P series is the ONLY one left with fully modular RAM.
