I am going to replace my laptop with a new one, because the old one is failing mechanically. The case is cracked and will soon break up and be beyond repair. The keyboard has some spotty keys. It's a shame, since it still functions well, but just won't hold up much longer (thanks for your product quality, HP).
It has a Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU, which is fairly high-end for laptop, from what I can tell. Is there some way I can salvage this and put it into another laptop? I'm trying to save money on my next laptop. I hate paying for a new Core i7 CPU when I have a perfectly good one.
If there's a way, how difficult would it be to install? I've done some work inside this laptop, replacing the fan and the mouse pad, though I'm far from an expert technician. But I'm willing to try it myself if it's not an extremely difficult thing to do.
