Think of SMP as an option that you can enable or disable.  This "option"
has been available for a long time in the standard (aka upstream aka
kernel.org) linux kernel.  You "enable" it in the list of options (there
are GUI tools for setting kernel options) before compiling it.  You
likely have the latest version available that has been built by your
distro.  So unless google points you to someone who has prebuilt a
kernel for your laptop, you already have the latest one.  Unless you
roll your own of course.
