Hey all.
I've got a Lenovo yoga 530 arr with a Ryzen 3. I'm wondering if it's possible to replace the motherboard with one that has a Ryzen 7 or an i7.
I don't really care if the battery will drain x amount faster since I do 90% have easy access to power from wall.

I believe all laptop motherboards are custom made for that specific model so it's probably very unlikely you'll find a match.

According to Lenovo, a ryzen 7 motherboard is "compatible" and all the specifications are almost the exact as the one I currently got. The only difference I can see really is the cpu and nothing else
