    You are likely going to have a hard time finding solid information of CPU upgrades for a laptop. Manufacturers rarely post or have this information available and you have to make sure the socket is correct, the chipset supports it, the BIOS supports, and that the laptop can provide the additional power it will require and provide the additional cooling it will need.

    Honestly if you need a faster processor you should just consider buying a new laptop that meets your new requirements.

    Can I ask why you require to upgrade? Is it for a specific program or game?
