You'll need a new system. Any upgrade from a 1.6 really won't help enough to properly play.

On a laptop? you're better off buying a whole new laptop.

A new processor would cost you half of what it would cost you to get a laptop today.
Can your machine run SWTOR? Find out here.

Get a desktop.

You will have to drop serious cash to get a laptop good enough to run this anywhere close to what the designers intended. (or mayeb get an external GPU).

Or get a PC for £500 (+a monitor and stuff) and have a decent gaming machine that will last you 3 or 4 years, and is totally incrementally upgradeable.
