Short: No its not.

Long: Its not possible because the CPU is soldered onto the board. In theory it is possible but it requires special equipment that cost a lot of money and very good soldering skills.

So Yes it is but its not possible for must people. If you want a better laptop, i suggest getting a new one.

Hope i answered your question! If I did hit accept answer!
