Not sure if this is the right area but, I currently own an Hp Pavillion g7 with an AMD a6-4400 APU.

The first question I want to ask is "Is it even possible to upgrade the g7?"(Motherboard/APU)

The second thing I want to know is if there is a motherboard/apu compatable with the g7 setup that is better than the 4400.

If someone could get back to me or if you need more info, dont hesitate to ask.

- Mike

Being a netbook, upgrade possibilities are next to nil, and even if it is possible the amount of money it would cost would outweigh the benefits you would get.

Okay, so I went and looked on HP's website and found this 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03593682.pdf

 

on page 18 of chapter 3, it shows the Proccesor's that this netbook can use.

going off of this does that mean that I could just throw the 10 series in here with no problems?

Doubtful, the A6 and A10 are in different power and thermal envelopes. Email HP.
