Just to name a Computer, or use it's name, and expect everyone to know
all about what hardware it uses, is a bit much to ask for. Are we all
supposed to be that much of Computers Freeks? 

Does the CPU plug into a Square Socket, or does it plug in via a long
slot, and the CPU is mounted on a card with a heat sink and fan. If it
is a long Socket or slot, you may be able to do an up grade like that.
Both Intel and AMD made "Slot One" CPU's. Secondhand these can cost
about $10.00 these days.
