"Is this a simple buy and swap or is it an involved process where i need to be aware of things.thx!StuXPS M1330 LaptopShipped with: T5250,1.50mhz.
Does anybody have suggestions to cost effectively upgrade?
its not that bad, leaps and bounds easier that the cpu upgrade i did on my insprion 1520,,,where you had to allmost take the entire notebook apart...
its very easy,,dell has great upgrade help...here is a link...don,t forget to put thermal grease between cpu and heatsink.

Dell Latitude D620, Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 2.33GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB Seagate Momentus 5400.4 HDD, 64MB Nvidia Quadro NVS 110M, Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG, DVD±RW, Windows Vista Ultimate w/ SP1
What kind of Core 2 Duo do you have? What's the model number (ie. T7600).
EDIT: Oops, noticed it in the first post. I would recommend a T8100 or T8300. The processor you have right now is an extremely low-end Core 2 Duo.
agree with robin24k,,,the t8300 would be my choice, sort of hard to find-
XPS (product red) M1530, A12 bios, Intel C2D T9300, 8 Gb (2x4) G-Skill Ram, 1 Gb Intel TCM, WD 320 7200 rpm hd, Intel 4945 wireless card, Sprint broadband card, bluetooth, x-fi express card, Hp Digital express card tuner, Vista Ultimate x64 sp2
Hmm, I was expecting prices on the T9300 to be higher, but it's about the same as the T8300.
wow, i quess they have come down in price....t9300
I wanted the x9000, but only ones that are even within my budget. are in china and they are Engineering Samples. Cant see wiring 400.00 and expecting anything good to become of the transaction. So i went with New Egg, and do not regret it.
I cerently am using a instiron 1545 and it is falling appart and I just got a great deal on a m1330 in my 1545 i have a t9600 and it works great my 1545 is runing faster in the setup i have then it ever did but the screen is falling off and the m1330 that i have coming is in good shape will I frie somthing if I put the t9600 in the m1330 xps laptop?
