    Do you know if it's an OEM or Engineering sample 2670QM? When I was researching upgrading the processor in my 4530s, I remember coming across an issue on whether a given 2670QM CPU chip was an OEM or engineering sample and that engineering samples might not work with OS X. If you got the CPU for much lower than the current going rate, there is a good chance that it's an engineering sample.

    FWIW, the 2670QM that I installed in my 4530s has been working flawlessly for over 2 years.

    I have an i7 2670QM working on a 4530s that came with an i3 2350M. Didn't post at first, so I tried the i3 again to make sure I didn't fry the MoBo. Worked, so I tried the i7 once more and it booted. KPs galore. iBoot got her running Mavericks again, but still no HDMI out. It works in W7, so it's an OSX problem.

    Keep in mind you need to generate a new SSDT for your CPU after replacing it. Running an i7 with an SSDT generated for an i3 would be a mistake.

    Hi all,

    I got a Probook 4530s Core i3-2310M, 4gb ram, 128gb SSD.

    Apart from buying another 4gb ram module I thought getting the i7-2750QM could be an important improvement.

    What do you guys think about it? it would cost me around £90 (british pounds). Is it really worth?

    thanks

    It has been tried. Usually successful.

    Risk is yours, of course.
