I am looking for better performances from a laptop, but I don't feel like buying a new one, since the one I have is in excellent conditions, a few year old...
I wanted to upgrade the processor (this is part of a bigger plan that includes adding 4 gb of RAM to 8gb and adding an SSD in the place of the optical drive).
After a few days of research, I thought about installing the Intel T9900, since I guess this is the best one I can choose..
I now have an Intel P7450, and my motherboard is an Intel GM45 or PM45, don't know which one..
Both processors have the same nm (45), the same socket, but the TDP of the T9900 is a little bit higher, 35 instead of 25..Is this a problem?
Besides, Should I assume my BIOS support the T9900 since it's a processor actually used on other laptop with an Intel GM45?
Thank you for your help!
