The short answer is no. It's a laptop so it's better to leave it alone. You can upgrade the RAM, or do an SSD to make it faster as well. The issue is that laptops are easy to break if you open them up, and most of the time the CPU is soldered to the main board, so you can't change it out anyways. Then you might run into BIOS or compatibility issues with a newer processor. Your best bet if you really want to to it, is to check a service manual for your laptop, and check to see if ASUS offered different processors in that same laptop model (same year). It's possible if they did, and your motherboard is socketed for a processor, you could upgrade. Chances are, it will be an expensive, time-consuming job that might not work.
