The idea that I only gained 10% performance and pretty much voided my warranty was not worth the increase, not to mention the price I paid for the CPU was another negative to the entire project. But overall the project was successful and we did prove a dv8000t can be upgraded.
So I guess my point is to not get your hopes up in seeing your laptop run 20-40% faster, maybe the increase from your 2050 will be in the 20% range of improved performance, but I would not expect anything more than that.
