Hello. I am upgrading my laptop's processor from i5 to i7. It shows by HP owner manual that the processor(Intel I7-3520M) is compatible. My question is if I change the processor, can I upgrade my RAM from 16 gb to 32 gb judging by intel's specs from website.
I hope you understand that there is almost 0 difference in upgrading mobile i5 to mobile i7 since both are 2 cores 4 threads.
As for the RAM question, HP owners manual should list the max supported memory capacity for the laptop.
Usually if it has 2 RAM slots, you'll be limited by 16GB.
