Is it possible to upgrade laptop CPU?

I have a ASUS G72gx and its CPU is kinda gettin a little outdated. Its a core2duo 2.53, is it possible to upgrade to like a duo extreme or duo4core? Maybe even further?

  1. It may be possible, however, it's generally not recommended due to too many factors that could go wrong in the process.

    Since your laptop is gaming oriented, I would do some research and see if it's possible to swap out the CPU. I know some gaming laptops are fully capable of swapping out components, so you may be lucky :)
  2. Generally no. Laptops are usually custom made with a certain chip in mind and the bios generally only supports that chip. Even if it may support higher clocked / better chips, the actual laptop cooling system may not even by sufficient to get rid of the heat.

    -- It's possible but hard to do so.
