  1. Not without a change of motherboard.

    The Dell Latitude is a line of laptops, not desktops, so not only will you need a very specific motherboard, but there's no guarantee that the new processor will work with the other components or the laptop's PSU. Also bear in mind that the laptop may not provide sufficient cooling for the new processor.

    Tread very carefully when upgrading laptop components; they aren't nearly as swappable as desktop ones.
