Motherboard upgrade on laptop

Jan 11, 2020 11:12PM PST

Hello CNET! so I currently own a HP x360 and was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the motherboard on it. I have searched online and haven't found much info on upgrading laptop motherboards. Is it possible to even upgrade my motherboard? I don't have much knowledge on hardware and help would really be appreciated.

You can't upgrade a motherboard, you can only replace it. And usually one will replace the CPU and the RAM also with more modern, faster ones.
But that's only for a desktop. For laptops, it can't be done.

size motherboard like desktops. Laptop motherboards are designed along with the case and nothing is standard. The ports have to match the case and there are thousands of cases and it hard to even find 2 the same even from the same manufacturer.
