I need to upgrade the cpu in my hp envy m6 sleekbook, but i can't find the processor port anywhere. I need to get at least 2.5 gigahertz core, thought i'd prefer somewhere around four.
 
Solution
Probably won't be possible. Most laptop CPUs and GPUs can't be switched out, as they are soldered onto the board. The only real exceptions to these are (usually) high-end gaming laptops that market that feature.

CPU's are just now starting to be soldered directly to the motherboard in laptops. This isn't really a big deal either way, though, because most laptops come with a board that's only compatible with one of a very limited choice of CPU swaps. Most aren't compatible with anything of a higher end, especially not a standard laptop that you'd buy from a store. They're made to wear and be replaced, not upgrade regularly.

If you want to do an upgrade on a laptop, you'd end up spending as much as you would to purchase an entirely new one, but it would give you some advantages in the long run. You'd need a new motherboard, which means a new power supply, but you'd need a new power supply anyway given that you'd need a CPU and GPU upgrade. If you're not very experienced with upgrading a computer personally, I'd suggest just buying a new laptop, or if you have the money to throw around, just build your own desktop so you can upgrade it more easily. Finding motherboards that fit in a laptop chassis is pretty time consuming and complicated. Not really worth the effort for minimal reward, when you could spend roughly the same amount of cash and build a decent desktop rig from scratch.
