I have an 4-year old ASUS laptop. The following are the details of the laptop:

Model - k55VJ
Processor - i7 3630QM 2.4 GHz
Ram - 8GB
Graphics - Nvidia GeForce GT 635M 2GB

I want to upgrade my processor to the latest processor at least. Would that be possible?

Thank you so much Godbless

It's worth pointing out that the 3740QM is only about 10% faster though, which would probably make it a pretty pointless upgrade.

Yeah this is true. If I were the OP I would be thinking about a whole platform upgrade (ie new laptop) with a better GPU if they game.
