Windows 7: Processor

Processor

I have a single core Pentium U2700 1.3Ghz in my laptop and Tesco told me it was dual so they have said they will sort it.
Will my motherboard take a dual pentium? and is it worth the cost?

If this is your processor, I am afraid it's soldered to the motherboard and can be replaced by a Technician or a competent person only. I may be wrong so wait for some educated answers.
Intel® Pentium® Processor for Mobile SU2700 - SLGS8
EDIT: Sorry,I was thinking that you were going to upgrade, they may fix with SU4100. Dual core is better than a single core IMO.

It's more likely they will offer you another laptop with dual core , why would it cost you ?

A processor upgrade single to dual core normally involves a new motherboard especially in a laptop

Computer sales people usually know about as much as a rock about hardware. You should have researched the specs on that PC. That CPU is very poor for anything but saving battery life.
