Highly doubtful. The only things I've found relating to "cpu" and "replace" is replacing the cpu fan.
Nothing about the actual CPU.

No. Laptop procs are soldered. You cannot replace it.

Lots of things I gotta say

-You cannot replace laptop CPUs as they are soldered (its like school glue for electronics) on to the motherboard.
-If it was a desktop, I wouldn't do it. Prebuilt desktop motherboards often use low wattage sockets to prevent the end user from upgrading.
-Companies also use the "OEM" version of Windows that makes you have to get another copy to perform upgrades.

Not necessarily. Some laptops do have the CPU in a socket. A Sony VAIO? Doubtful.
And the OEM (for Win7 anyway) only yells at you if you change the motherboard.

Its better to be safe than sorry. I wouldn't take the chances because motherboards on prebuilts have very low wattage going to the socket because they use ULV CPUs, therefor making replacing that with an consumer CPU very hard.
