I have owned an Acer 23xc acer travelmate for 3 years. It has a Mobile intel celeron 1.7ghzM processor. Can I upgrade it simply to perhaps a faster celeron or Pentium 4 or will this either cost plenty or create problems.

RAM increase is your best option.

If you are using XP, an increase to 512MB will make the machine sing along. Visit Crucial to see how much it will cost you

Have to agree with wee eddie, laptops are nothing like desktops they are in may cases almost impossible to upgrade. I would go with his advise and add more memory.
