Do most (Lenovo) laptops have a removable CPU? Will my Socket G1 CPU work in a Socket G2 motherboard.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Lenovo X201 Tablet with a i7 620LM and I'm building a mini ITX computer for a project.

I've always wished I had a lower TDP processor in my laptop so I'm hoping I can use the i7 in my project computer and drop a i5 560UM in the laptop.

I forsee two problems. The first is that the CPU may be soldered into the laptop's motherboard, and the second is that even if I can remove the CPU, the mini ITX motherboard that I need to use is a Socket G2 and the CPUs I'm talking about are socket G1.

My ray of hope is that the socket G1 and G2 have the same pin count, however I'd like to get some better information before I start buying parts.

Edit: the specific motherboard I'm looking at is X9SCV-QV4

Nope, it is definitely not embedded, and they are both listed as BGA-1288, so they should have identical pin counts.
