as the poster above, why upgrade a laptop when it can be cheaper to buy new one?

Why not get a new laptop? Better value for your money.

The problem with that is you're stuck with the older generation of CPU's, older GPU, etc. There is a limit to the performance you're going to get by just upgrading the CPU, and it would be a temporary fix. The core i3/i5/i7 offer much better efficiency per clock and that would be the way to go. Not to mention, if you do decided to upgrade your CPU, and you mess up, you're out the cost of the CPU + you're looking at a new laptop anyways. You're also not going to fix the heat issue by upgrading to a faster CPU, it may in fact make it worse.
