Laptop manufacturer and model?

 

Upgrade for what purpose...what is the goal of this projected upgrade?

You can't really upgrade the cpu on a laptop. Firstly, the cpu is often sottered to the motherboard. Second, if the new cpu takes more power the battery and cooler might not be able to handle the increased power. Third, it is hard to find a laptop for sale.

you can upgrade some laptops, some you cannot, and with the ones you can, the options are limited. But we do need the make and model number before we can supply a solid answer as to whether it can be upgraded or not. And just to fore warn you, on those that can, its not usually a easy process.

Usually CPU upgrades are not worth the time unless you know someone that has very good expertise and knows models and motherboards in those laptops, and even then it's usually not worth it even of by chance you could upgrade because you would not see substantial overall performance gains with just another processor. Usually those type gains are best had by SSD's (Solid State Drives) or GPU's, but GPU upgrades are a no-go on 99.8% of laptops. So with laptops I recommend SSD's and more installed physical memory for peak performance.

batterys do not usually affect the speed, there are a host of other things that could be causing it, ranging from bloatware to viruses, to having the hard drive to full.
