    Looks like the T2450 would be your only option. It runs at 2Ghz which is an improvement but not a huge improvement.

    Improving the speed of a processor can only be done by overclocking the chip. However, that is not recommended on a laptop as it generates considerable heat and no aftermarket cooling solution is available for a laptop.

    Upgrading (changing) your processor might be the only option.
