Lenovo L420 CPU Upgrade to I5 2410M possible?

Hello!

I have a Lenovo L420 laptop which is running on a Intel Core i3 2330M CPU,

I'm thinking about upgrading it to an i5 2410M that i have from a broken laptop.

What i would like to ask you is, will this work?

I have tried searching on the web, but dont understand that much about what the people are saying.

    Yes, it'll work fine. Taking the laptop apart is the hardest part of the task, but as long as you clean off the old thermal paste from the heatsink and put new paste on, you'll be fine. The performance gains won't be earth-shattering, but the new CPU will be a bit faster.
