The Acer Aspire 5750-6493 laptop appears to come with an Intel Core i3-2330M 2.20 GHz processor.
The only upgrade option you have with the majority of laptops is to add more RAM.
That laptop supports up to 8 GB of DDR3 RAM.
Why are you wanting to change the processor anyway?

to replace it with a faster processor
I already know that's what you want to do, but it doesn't answer my question.
Most people try to upgrade a laptop for a better gaming experience, so I'm guessing that's why you want a faster processor in it.
Unfortunately, that option isn't available with most laptops.

With a laptop, you are almost always stuck with what you have. Even IF you could replace the processor, there is more to an upgrade than simply replacing the cpu. You must have proper cooling to dissipate the extra heat and you must have a pw supply capable of supplying the extra pw.

In short, I doubt you can replace the cpu with anything other than what was an option when you purchased the laptop. As an example if your laptop came with a xxx123 or a yyy123, you could upgrade to the faster of those however that is it.

If you just want better performance, consider upping the ram to the max you can install. From checking, it looks like that will support 8gig of ram. If you have a 64bit os, I would consider doing the above.
