Dell D610

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys...
ive got this laptop yesterday (trust me... very cheap)
and i got surprised by the compatibility with new world (mean new OSes)...

i got it as faulty but the only fault was that there was no charger... so guy couldnt power it up... (charger died)

so i borrowed from a friend.. and voila... its working...

so first i was checking from windows what are the specs, as i wanted to try some other OSes, like win7, some linux...

when i put ubuntu.. o man... not even a laptop that i currently have cant be compared to it... (samsung r60+)

even for such a old laptop, he can be used still for lots of things around...
but...
when i put win7 on it...
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....

its flyin....
with centrino cpu, of 1core, and 2x512mb, 40gb of ide hdd....
its flyin...

i still cant belive it...


EDIT:
My question was, what cpu would i be able to fit in this laptop, is it possible to have duo core in it??
socket is mpga 479

I think Core Duo is as far as you can go. If you want to be sure follow these steps:
1.Basic reckoning: see if Dell has offered the D610 as an option with CoreDuo - this would mean at least one type of D610 motherboard supports CD
2.Mobo: make sure the motherboard your model has is the same type as the one that supports CD (or that there is only one type of board for all D610s)
3.BIOS: supposing you have the proper motherboard you only need to make sure the BIOS version is the one that supports CD.

My 2 cents: you'll also see a decent speed bump by getting more RAM. If it runs DDR2 you're in luck as there are 1GB DIMMs for sale under 10$.
