To elaborate: black_zion is (very most likely) correct.
The final answer comes from the laptop manufacturer. In this case, Acer. If a CPU upgrade is possible, it would have to be purchased through them, and be compatible with your laptop. Just because it is the same socket is not good enough for laptops. You have to think about how a laptop is entirely different than a desktop system. Upgradibility is very limited.
Three things that come to mind for me:
1) the space available in the laptop
2) battery/power concerns
3) heat issues
Your laptop model (shipped with that CPU) may be very specifically tailored to that configuration only - leaving upgradibility very (if not non-existant) limited.
