I'm new to the forum, and I'm really starting to get into computers in my free time. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, and RAM maxed out at 4GB. I also added a bluetooth card (not that that matters).
The stock CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.0GHz, M 550 (at least that's what the program CPUID tells me). Can anyone recommend an upgraded CPU? I've read from another guy trying to do the same thing, that the most up-to-date processor this computer will take is an Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4GHz. Any thoughts? Looks like I can get a used one for under $20, which is appealing. I do not game, and this laptop is really just a spare. Any other recommendations? Is upgrading the CPU .4GHz even worth it? Thanks!
