You can upgrade to any of the Core 2 Duo mobile processors, but NOT the newer Core i3, i5 or i7 family.

I found this one. Is this the best one I can get? "Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 2.80 GHz 6M L2 Cache 1066MHz FSB Socket P Mobile Processor"

According to this a T4300 is a Penryn-3M CPU family:


Therefore whilst it may be theoretically feasible to fit another CPU, I feel a 1066fsb is optimistic. Dell tightly control their BIOS implementations.

To be honest it is a budget Laptop and will still be a budget Laptop whatever CPU you install, it is held back by the Intel HD Graphics Chipset, not the CPU.

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....
