Hello,

I am just starting to look at options for upgrading my current notebook pc.
I guess I was wondering what processor upgrades are availible for my system. I would like to have a Duo but am not sure that would work in my system. Oh I did upgrade the memory to 2gigs already.

Here are the current Specs:

Not to mention that cpu upgrades in laptops are serious business involving disassembling the entire chasis... not for the faint of heart.
You will not be able to just buy an upgrade for your laptop... You will need to purchase an entire new notebook to get any upgrades what so ever, unless of course it was an Alien Ware which are somewhat upgradable, but you have a Dell and the Dell laptops can't be upgraded.
