✔ Best Answer
These are the two choices of processor that the above link shows that they offer as options and therefore they support.
Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core B950 Processor
Intel® Core™ i3 2330M Processor
There MIGHT be other i-3 or possibly i-5 processors of the 2xxxM series that would be supported, but there is no guaranty that it's BIOS will support it. This means that after changing it, it might work, it might not work, or it might just be down clocked to the maximum supported speed and # or cores and all else will be ignored.

As far as graphics, you cannot change graphics on a laptop like you can on a desktop. They are permanently affixed to the motherboard, that is why laptops are offered with either a single graphics option, or up to three options, depending on the company and the price range of the system.

If you intend to use it for gaming or for graphics intensive programs (photoshop, Autocad 3D, etc), then you will need to sell it and replace it with one with an appropriate model with the needed components included or factory customized when ordered.

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

"if this is your laptop I find no need to upgrade"

I agree. What would be the purpose of the upgrade? I just did a quick search to see what an Intel® Core™ i3 2330M would cost:
