What is this?

Kodiak.

I have a HP Pavilion laptop.

I didn't buy it, so I have no idea what it is.

Serial number and other information not visible.

 

It has the same case design as the HP Pavilion 15-P202, but it has an AMD A6 processor as opposed to an Intel i5.

 

Any ideas? I want to mod it but I need to know if the CPU is removable and what processors support the voltages for that socket.

It's a laptop, the CPU is soldered on the mobo so it's not replaceable. You might be able to upgrade the HDD and RAM.

Alright. I was under the impression only BGA chips were soldered. Any ideas what the model of laptop is?

This isn't fully correct. More modern laptops have soldered CPUs, but pretty much all the older ones had sockets.

Thanks for the clarification, did not know that.

Seems like correct era, but there is always something that I can't find.

 

It has Beats audio, but I can only find a model with Beats audio on an Intel HP Pavilion, event though I specifically downloaded HWInfo on it to check that it was indeed an A6.

If you can turn it on, why can't you just look at the system info and find the part number then Google that?

Thing is, it's at my house in Massachusetts, I'm in New Hampshire, I'm decided whether to mod with it, but to see what it is I need to ship it up and don't want to if it's not a good APU as I want to use it for light indie gaming after it's modded.
