    Laptop is "leader" Australian brand , says "Intel core i7 processor, but I've not been able to identify which generation, so I can't find a replacement.
    Anyone know ??

    Been doing more research , well looking up , and might be 3rd 4th or even slight chance 5th generation , I believe it's quad/4 core ? But without a motherboard/laptop it's very hard to find out ....

    All sorted ,. Found a CPU to upgrade the Wife's laptop !!
    Took Her CPU and swapped out mine , it's working fine , using a little executable file "cpu-z" I have found out Wife's was an Intel Mobile core i5 third gen , put a mid high range core i7 in.
    So my laptop has a slight minor down grade but :);) it's working now , Now I have the time to both use it and search for a well priced (cheap :relieved:) i7 lol .
