I'm not sure if this is the case these days but I think it used to be that on laptop motherboards the components were soldered in. This thread might be more appropriate for the laptop section of the forum and you would probably get more attention there anyway.

CPU: i7 2600k@4.6 ghz
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Deluxe b3
Cooler: Swiftech H320
RAM: 16 (4x4) gb Team Group Vulcan 2400 mhz @ 2176 mhz / 11-13-13-35-2T
GPU: Sapphire Radeon 7870
Case: NZXT Source 530
Storage: Segate 480 gb SSD + 2x300 gb WD Velociraptors

i have a socket s1g4 laptop and the cpu IS removable i would hope/think yours is too. but check first anyway.
you should get a temp monitoring program and see what your temps run on different loads.
i have a laptop with the single core v140 and its cooling system is so horrible it idles around 50c lights loads with run it up 60-70c its really that horrible. if your temps run like mine then i would definitely stick another 25w cpu.
ok after checking temps determine what programs you mainly run do you use alot of single/dual threads apps if so go with a dual core like the Phenom II p650 it will perform faster than your current cpu on those kinds of programs.
if you run alot of multithreaded programs like 3 or more threads you should probably stick with what you got unless you dead sure your lappy can cool a 35w and maybe check into that.
but remember on cpus like these getinga faster quad core wont really run single/dual threaded apps any faster than what you have now and you should look into dual core-possibly tri-core if you want a good middle ground
this is a pretty good site to see a list of s1g4 processors

If anyone more educated that I, see that im telling this person wrong please correct me.
