I have an m17x r1 AW. its processor is the intel core2 duo T9600 with a mpga479 socket and would like to upgrade to a quad core. I am looking at the intel quad core Q9000/9100 and QX9300 but they are mpga 478 socket. My question is will it work? and how do I double check without spending lots of cash? my computer is currently at a laptop repair shop
Socket compatibility aside, why would you want to install a slower CPU? Did you even look at the prices? The QX9300 is selling for approx $1000. Since your laptop is in the shop, why don't you discuss it with them?
