It can BUT I wouldn't do it, this motherboard is rated at a specific thermal rate (as all are) and a bigger/hotter CPU will shorten it's lifespan, the A6 is plenty powerful enough

answer 2
On average, middle-brightness setting, the battery lasted 4 hours on one full charge, surfing the internet, watching movies. This can be extended up to 7 hours on low brightness settings. These ratings are of course dependent on what software is running, temperature, display brightness, and how well you take care of your battery.

Everything is Hype about power now but they are reducing the estimates too. Figure most estimates are almost Double of what you'll get in real world applications just like your phone so around 2.5 - 3 hours.

there were not alot of bloatware on here to my surprise. This laptop came with a few samsung apps that i recommend you keep and take a look at. One program allows you to backup the computer. I recommend you sit with it. I also posted a review of this product. It is worth the month if you are thinking about buying it
