Can a 1.83 Ghz Intel Core Duo be upgraded to meet requirements for OS X Lion 10.7?

The current medical billing company utilized by the company I contract with can only be utilized with the newest upgrade for Java (Java 7) making Java 6 obsolete. Java 7 can only be downloaded with and Intel Core 2 or other processors I have the above listed processor. If I can not access the medical billing software and/or Java 7 my current laptop would be useless for my employment. Please advise.

    Unless its desktop counterpart (the Mac mini) from that generation, the processor in your MacBook cannot be upgraded. There are methods of installing Lion on unsupported Intel Core Duo Macs, however these installations are unofficial and aren't recommended (not to mention not supported) by Apple.
