Summary: Much faster than the one it replaced. I installed as an upgrade to an aspire 5532 and it was well worth the effort not to throw away the laptop. But the installation in the laptop was not for everybody, it too patients, skill and luck.
Summary: Boosted my old Dell Vostro 1000. Running much faster now. Upgraded the ram and hard drive (to and ssd) as well. First I just did the ram and hard drive but that wasn't enough. The processor was the cherry on top that made everything come together.
The difference in performance is excellent. The laptop went from a reading of 25

Summary: I bought this CPU to upgrade a Compaq nx6325; it replaced a 1.6 GHz Sempron. The difference in performance is excellent. The laptop went from a reading of 25.4 in the Linux Blowfish test to a reading of 10.5 (lower numbers are better). The speedup in program execution was noticeable and welcome.
