  1. 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!
  2. if its the model listed in this manual ( http://www.clevo.com.tw >eservices > download manual W24?HUx (?=0,1,5,6,8,A,B)/ W25xHUx

    then it looks like it could use the following cpus

    Note all processor packages are
    rPGA988B
    Intel® Core i7-2620M (2.7GHz)
    4M L3 Cache, 32nm (32 Nanometer),
    DDR3-1333MHz, TDP 35W

    Processor
    Intel® Pentium® B950 (2.10GHz)
    2M L3 Cache, 32nm (32 Nanometer),
    DDR3-1333MHz, TDP 35W
