    The armada 1573 is a laptop and you can't upgrade as I believe the cpu is wavesoldered to the motherboard. It's also highly unlikely that you'll find a new/replacement motherboard with a better processor. Even if you could, it would be cost prohibitive. You'd be better off searching through the refurbished/used laptops at pricewatch.com.

    btw, here's technical support link at hp for the armada 1500 series

    Laptop are cost are still a bit high but before upgrading, I would check if the invest realy worth versus invest in buying a brand new laptop.

    Sometime, upgrading doesn't worth it.
