    Here is a few CPU's of the same socket design.

    Before an upgrade, its always necessary to determine if the motherboard and BIOS will recognize the CPU upgrade. You will need to do your homework on this before you decide.

    As for over-clocking the CPU even if you had the option, over-clocking a notebook would be unwise. Performance is crippled to minimize heat in confined spaces as well as power consumption from the batteries.

    If you think you need more performance, you should consider purchasing new tech. New tech will give you greater performance with less heat and lower power consumption.
