Yes & No ....

Depending on which exact model you have you could replace the CPU chip with a higher clocked Core 2 Duo. But that wouldn't gain you that much given the amount of work and trying to find one of these older chips.

As to upgrading to the newer i series chips i3, i5 or i7 is not workable as they use a different socket type.
