You cannot replace your processor as easily as a Hard disk or Ram.

I would recommend you to replace your hard drive from a preinstalled one to a Solid State Hard Drive (SSD)

and Ram to 8 or 16 GB ~ which ever your MBP supports.

Note : SSDs can vary in price range, i would recommend you Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E500B/AM) available on Amazon for $129.99
