Laptops and Notebook computers rarely pay to upgrade anything except additional memory when they came with too little. Some of the thicker, heavier models are in sockets but the smaller and thinner ones are usually integrated into the motherboard. The latter is definitely not changable. The time to decide to upgrade the CPU or graphics on a laptop is BEFORE you purchase it, after that, you are s.o.l. (s--- out of luck). Your efforts and money would be better spent waiting until it became intolerable and then purchase a new machine with the best you can afford.
About the only upgrade I would recommend aside from additional RAM is to upgrade from a slow hard drive to a fast SSD drive which has the potential to pep things up a bit more. I understand that WD just released a new dual drive (which is different from a hybrid drive) which takes up a single drive bay and gives you both a fast SSD drive and an attached fast high capacity hard drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
