so i'm doing some homework on a old laptop i've being given, its a toshiba l670 right now it has a i3 380M and from what i can tell its not soldered into the MB and uses the G1 socket , i know i will need to swap a chip with integrated graphics. im well skilled in building and the cpu's are of the same relative tdp and architecture
