    I have intel core i3-7020u and I would wanna upgrade it to i3-8100 because it is the cheapest processor that's compatible with windows 11

    Hi,
    Unfortunately, you can not upgrade i3-7020u CPU because it's soldered to the motherboard.

    Is it possible to upgrade the Intel core i5 6400 CPU on the Acer Aspire TC-780? It is not an approved CPU for Windows 11.

    Hi,
    Windows11 will work better with 7th Gen CPUs or newer CPUs, you may be able to install in a laptop with i5-6400 but the OS will not perform at it's best, you also need TPM enabled in your PC, I would suggest you stick to Win10 for the time being because Win11 is more or less Win10 with few cosmetic changes in my opinion, MS also may consider relaxing some of the CPU restrictions when they finally release Win11 to the public.

    so it is possible to upgrade my pc to windows 11 with an i3-7020u processor?

    It's not very clear at the moment, I think Intel will announce about the details of CPU requirements when the time comes for Windows11 public release, at the moment the CPU requirement is 8th Generation and newer needed for Windows11 but it may change latter in my opinion.

    The Aspire E5-471P uses the 4th gen chipset and is only compatible with 4th gen CPUs. Even if you could upgrade it to a 6th gen, that will not get you running Windows 11, because that requires 8th gen or newer.
