    The problems with upgrading the CPU in any laptop is the increase in TDP. This increase will usually result in additional heat, and this is not a good thing in laptops.

    An easy way to increase the performance is to increase the RAM to the max that the board will support. Installed: 1GB (1GBx1) - Maximum: 2GB - Type/Speed: DDR2/667MH

    Leave the 250 GB hard drive alone.

  2. one of the best ways to increase speed in any laptop is the addition of more Ram.

    Thank you for the info. I did already increase the Ram was just wondering if the CPU could be upgraded.

    Thanks Mike
  5. Overall, no. It's a netbook, which are not designed for CPU intensive task. They are designed really just to check your email on the go. If you really need CPU speed, time for a new system overall.
