most likley no as the i7-u640 is socket BGA1288 and the i7-4800MQ is socket FCPGA946 so most likely no they are not compatible in the same board thus not upgradeable.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Do you know of any compatible processor that I can use to upgrade this laptop? 1.20GHz processor is really horrible :-(
Thanks in advance.

the i7-660LM is the best chip which will work with it just make sure you know how to disassemble and then reassemble the laptop
In that it might require some special tools as laptops do not ussualy use standardized things like on PCs saddly.
