Summary: Works great in my old laptop. Gave it a little bit more power to make this last longer. For the price, it's way cheaper than just buying a whole new mid range laptop, if you know what you're doing. Would recommend.
Summary: I have always been an AMD fan, and when I was looking for a new laptop to replace my Sony Vaio Pentium 4, I sought out an AMD platform. I really liked the new HP Pavilion (this was 2007) laptops, so I picked up the Dv6458se (special edition Dv6500) with the AMD Turion X2 TL-60 CPU over the Intel Core 2 Duo because it was AMD and was about $150 cheaper for the same spec. I was really happy I did! The Turion line is AMD's lineup of mobile CPU's for laptops.
