Is there any laptop with over 3.5 GHz base frequency?
Not that I'm aware of unless there is a model out there with a desktop CPU.
The i7-7700HQ is 2.8Ghz base with 3.8Ghz turbo.
Here you go, comes with a 8700k
Many intel CPUs spend much of their time at the turbo frequency not the base if they have decent cooling. For laptops you do need to be more careful about reading reviews to see how well the cooling works.
What will you use it for?
Is 8700K a desktop processor? Can desktop processor be used inside laptop?
Yes. Yes if the laptop was designed to use a desktop processor.
Most laptops are NOT designed to use a desktop processor. A desktop processor is NOT a buying choice or upgrade option for most laptops.
What do you want to use the laptop for?
As DaveSimmons stated, it is. When you post here, you simply type one sentence, and then leave. For example, the last time you were here, you wrote:
When you write simple one sentence statements, we have no idea what your budget or goals are. We are simply guessing. Maybe if you provided at least some detail, you would get a lot more helpful suggestions. You stated you wanted a laptop with over a 3.5 Ghz base, and then not much later, you created a separate thread stating you wanted a laptop with a 4.0 Ghz base. Not much information to go off of there.
Why aren't most laptops designed to use a desktop processor? What's wrong using desktop processor in laptops?
Also I heard that updating laptop-processor is difficult or not possible for HP laptops?
The difficulty is they use a lot more power, and produce a lot more heat than mobile CPUs. You trade some raw power for longer battery life, lower temperatures, and potability.
Some mobile laptops CPUs can often be replaced, but it's not what most be do unless their CPU dies.
I suggest you watch some YouTube videos for more information.
Sager desktop processor laptops
Sager has been in the business selling desktop processor based laptops for a long time.
Don't know if its recent products are good or not.
Check this out. It's a Pentium 4 3.2GHz Desktop CPU running inside a "laptop":
Still working, they might even consider selling it...
Though their idea of modern computers and what things are worth are not in line with reality.
I'm sure I could get them well below the $2k cost of a new Sager though.
Clevo makes desktop cpu laptops.
Ugh, I remember working on a couple of those. With power management almost non-existent at the time on those 85 watt CPUs, it was like having a 120 watt lightbulb in your lap all the time. It just puked heat from boot till shutdown. Don't miss those days at all.
