My desktop is running a Quad Core i7-2700K @3.50 GHz
Old Acer Aspire 5920 got upgraded from a Core 2 Duo T5750 @2.00 GHz to a T9500 @2.60 Ghz
Other 2 laptops have soldered CPUs one Dell with an i3-3227U @1.90 GHz and an Acer with an i5-3337U @ 1.80 GHz
Another Dell Vostro that had an i3-2350M @2.30 GHz upgraded to an i7-2630QM @2.00 GHz Hopefully someday I'll get a i7-2860QM (Accepts faster RAM, faster clock speed and more cache) for it.
Maxing out CPUs on laptops is surprisingly fun and makes the laptop usable for a longer period of time as OSs upgrade over time. As long as that laptop doesn't use BGA which is soldered to the mainboard
