Default Upgrading laptop

ok well first post. I got my Toshiba Satellite about a year ago. I use it mainly for gaming. low settings stuff, C&C, fallout. I've started playing a few games though that It just doesn't have the power to play fluidly. World of tanks namely.

It's pretty bad when the Windows Experience Index says your processor sucks. I've got a AMD E1-1200 APU with radeon HD graphics 1.4 GHz. I havent seen it on any lists of processors on here, so i really dont know where it ranks.

I want to upgrade this to something that will play games fairly well, but I dont know where to start.

As in how? You can't upgrade the APU in your laptop so you're stuck with what you got unless you want a new laptop or PC.

No because most lower end systems are soldered onto the board these days.
