I have a Sony VAIO VGN AW11S and I was wondering can I upgrade my CPU to a faster one. I don't know much about hardware and I can't find anywhere that says the size or 'fit' of the cpu if that matters or not. Currently I have an Intel Dual Core P8400 2.26Ghz but I want to upgrade, but is it worth it and will it have much of an effect?

Well, I don't think you can replace laptop CPUs, although with the socket P CPUs, you might be able to. You might be able to upgrade to another CPU which has the same 25W TDP and voltage rate - 1.0V - 1.25V, something like a Core 2 Duo P8700, however, I don't think it would be worth it, although it would speed up some applications a bit.

Is there any worthwhile upgrades I can make to this laptop to increase gaming performance or is it just the general ' Somehow make a ton of money quickly and buy an amazing desktop'?

That laptop should game pretty good it is better then most are since it has a half decent graphics solution in it. The only thing you can really do to laptops is upgrade RAM and change Hard Drives other than that you cant do anything.

And that would barely be worth the time and money of messing with it.
