I am looking to upgrade my laptop's CPU in order to get better multitasking and overall performance from it, atleast until I purchase a new daily driver. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX and it comes with a Intel Celeron Processor 900 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB). I am looking to upgrade that CPU to an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9300 (6M Cache, 2.50 GHz, 800 MHz FSB), which seems to be the best option after reading up on a few forums of people trying to do the same thing. The CPU's share sockets (PGA478) and TPD (35w), other than that I'm not sure what else I should be looking for in terms of compatibility.
Here are some CPU-Z screenshots to help:
So my questions are:
Do you guys think this upgrade would work and give me a bit more multitasking power (Excel, Word, Outlook etc.)?
Am I missing anything that might make my CPU choice incompatible or a bad idea?
Any and all advice and or recommendations would be greatly appreciated, it is my first time upgrading a CPU so I may be ignorant of some aspects of the process. Thank you all, in advanced.
Note* The RAM (2GB) and HDD have already been upgraded to 4GB and a Scandisk SSD
