Even if it was possible, I wouldn't recommend it.

I was JUST about to post about my cpu and how to get more of it.

I cant run WoW or my Xbox/ps2 games at more than 70% both run at about 40 fps which is horrid.

even if its not smart, what would we need to do to get more cpu

actually, 40fps is very playable...

and to get more out of a processor you usually need to overclock it, but I wouldn't recommend OCing a laptop...
