laptops are not generally built to be upgraded, other than ram and/or hard drives, so upgrading the motherboard and CPU is MUCH more trouble that it is worth, even if possible.
You would probably have to upgrade the battery and cooling with a higher performance motherboard and CPU.

You need to discover what socket the CPU is in.
If it is a BGA socket, you are 100% out of luck.
Something else, you can maybe change it, within a small range of other CPU's.

So...what CPU and socket do you have?

Yes True but most impotant point of laptop mainly is performance right? If i could pay 200-300 dolar for upgrading i5 4200u ddr3 8gb that would be perfect.

No, the most important aspect of a laptop is the portability.
If you want performance, get a desktop.

Bottom line - you have to determine if your CPU can be changed.
Many cannot.
And if it can be...to what? It may not be a significant change.

I look at inside you cant change it. It is melted like gpu i5 4200u. I cant even change ram only hard drive and fan LOL.

I looked at online and found this if it might help:

Yoga 2 13 (my one) http://www.laptopultra.com/guide/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Lenovo-Yoga-2-13-Disassembly-1.jpg
yoga 910 https://i1.wp.com/laptopmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/IMG_20161031_134631.jpg

In size they are same but internaly 910 have 2 fan and moterbord in diffrent place.

I dont think so any one would have experience or enough knowledge for this subject. Thank you guys.

It is looking like this but I think there is chance you can change motherboard if it is fit.

Only if you find one in that exact same line of laptops. Not just Lenovo...that specific line from Lenovo.
This may or may not be an improvement.

Laptops are not standardized like desktops are.
