    Hello there!

    I have a laptop that I want to make faster (be able to play game like league of legends and team fortress 2 better).

    I have a HP Pavilion g7 notebook PC with windows 8. My current processor is a AMD A4-4300M APU with radeon HD graphics (2 CPU'S) ~2.5GHz.
    I have a 4096MB RAM memory.

    I was wondering if I could buy a better processor or if my processor is stuck to my motherboard. If so, what processor can I buy to make it faster and how do I install it? I have about 150 euros available so price doesn't really matter.

    Thanks in advance!

    The only hardware upgrade option you have is to add more RAM, but that likely won't improve your gaming experience.

    If you want to play hard-core games in a laptop, you need to buy one that's intended for that purpose and not for normal use.

    Your laptop has an APU processor.

    You might have an upgrade path for a faster processor that will also have somewhat better graphics, as part of the chip.

    This is NOT a gaming laptop...not even close...

    Personally I would neither spend the money, nor get my hopes up.
