Excellent write up. I may be looking for a T7200. Couldnt find one for as cheap as yo did though. Identical process for the xps I assume. I figure this and a future GPU upgrade should be fine untill all the "new new" stuff settles in.
Same socket, would this be a drop in for my T2500?
Intel Core 2 Duo T7600 Merom 2.33GHz Socket M Processor Model BX80537T7600
or the E6600
I am an AMD guy, this is my first Intel chip. Not sure on the sockets.
just recvd my 1710 but i didnt realize it and got the red lid. havent tried to remove it yet, but could i theoreticaly swap it out with a black one? i imagine it just snaps off, but i dont want to risk anything yet, lol.
