Yes you can upgrade it, your chipset is the HM55 and the processor socket is PGA-988, I have found two i7 processors that may be suitable:

i7-840QM $780 USD
i7-3820QM $603 USD

Hope that helps.

Hi :) 

You realise that its a Laptop ?

So Bios compatability and Heat ?

All the best Brett :)

Heat might be an issue, the vast majority of laptops run warm to begin with. Bios...I don't really know any way of knowing, without it being explicitly stated on the manufacturers website, other than correct socket and chipset. If it was me, I would take the $600 from the price of upgrading the CPU and spend it on building a desktop.
