Yes, you should be able to upgrade the CPU. The 700m uses a Pentium M CPU running at a 400MHz FSB (or Celeron M at 400MHz FSB). It is compatible with both the old 'Banias' based chip (1MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 1.7GHz) as well as the 'Dothan' based chip (2MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 2.1GHz). All new orders ship with the newer and superior Dothan based chips now (unless the Celeron is chosen), and I suggest you stick to that path when upgrading... the only advantage of the Banias based chips are lower power consumption at the low speedstep setting coming at the cost of some performance. Since these are intended to be portable semi-desktop replacements the more powerful Dothans are preferred.

Don't forget some Thermal paste when installing a new CPU or you may encounter some heat issues which can cause serious damage.

Slow Cpu speed

Check in the BIOS to see what processor is rated at (upon power-up of laptop hit F2 key to enter setup menu). Depending on what model Centrino you have, the speed rating should be at around 1.2 GHz or better. If speed checks out in the BIOS then run diagnostics on laptop to see if the motherbrd has a bottleneck issue. To do this, hold down the <FN> key and then push the power on button. Problem could be either your processor or motherbrd.
