Upgrading intel CPUs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've thought about it for a while now, could i replace my Dell Inspiron 1520s CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo T7250) to a faster and better one like Core 2 Duo T7500 or even Core 2 Duo T7800?

Only if they are of the same wattage. Laptops are already made with the most bare minimum of cooling, so putting in a hotter processor isn't going to be a good thing.

He's talking about TDP watts. As long as the TDP watts match you should be fine. It looks like the T7500 and T7800 could be used as an upgrade.
