From what I can tell you have a Socket G2 processor. Here are a couple of possible upgrades:

However, you should check with Clevo to see what CPU options ship with your particular model of system. You want to ensure that your BIOS will recognize the new CPU and that the notebook's heatsink/fan assembly can handle the heat of the faster CPU.

Good luck!
