hey quick question perferably from someone who has done this.

my asus has a 2.13 ghz P7450 and i was wondering if the 2.4 ghz P8600 would even be a noticable upgrade, what about the 2.53 ghz P8??? with 3mb cache, and what about the 2.53 ghz P9??? wit 6mb cache.

i don't think the 2.53ghz ones could justify the 350 ish price but if im wrong correct me.

i'm also think even the 2.4ghz couldn't justify the 219 price.

please leave me some info

so they both use the Socket P?

what it the wattage on the one you got?

Any notice in change of battery life or heat?

nope no noticeable upgrade. unless it was upgrade from pxxxx to txxxx

In reality upgrading a cpu on laptop is pretty high tech stuff. So i wouldn't really mess with it. Plus the processors are crazy expensive.

I would just stick with what you have since it is a pretty nice processor in the first place.

the p series intell duo core cpu's use less wattage. So if you were to upgrade the cpu. You might see a more of a power draw thus increasing the drain on your battery.

I have the QX9300. It's a quad core mobile processor. 12MB Cache, 2.53HGz. The upgrade really isn't that bad. It took about 2 hours, plus, I got some as5 on it. As far as battery life, maybe it's a little bit worse, but by about 5%. I upgraded to SSD's at the same time, so that may have offset the decrease somewhat. I think the TDP is 35W on this puppy
EDIT: Yep, it's 45W

and yes there will be a bigger battery drain with the qx installed. 44 watt tdp vs 25 tdp

sorry double post....

no prob

thanks for the info wasn't really planning on up grading just checking it out.

so would the QX9300 even work in mine or not got a little confused

just check ebay and the cheapest i saw was like 600

sounds like a great deal you got
