Summary: I upgraded my girlfriend's dell inspirion 1545 cpu from a t4300 to the p8700. It gets the job done for a casual internet surfer while being only $37. I recommend this product only if you understand what the specs mean and you know it's compatible.
Summary: This processor took 20 seconds to calculate 1 million places of pi on the SuperPi bench and 19:30min to calculate 32 million places. Compare these times to a 4ghz overclocked AMD Phenom II x6 1090T which scored 17.5s and 18:06mins. That's amazing for a little dual core!
Pros: Have had this processor in my school supplied laptop since March of 2009 and I can say with absolute honesty that this thing has never done be wrong. adequately fast for everyday computing and websurfing and really not all that bad at playing games either. She gets me a Windows 7 score of 6.1 sto...
Cons: Seems to run a bit hot, as I'm typing right now it's idling about 40C. my room is 68 degrees F. But that's really nitpicking. I love this thing!
Summary: I have this in a Asus g60vx..original CPU was a T7450 2.13mhz... that got a 5.9 windows score over clocked at 2.33mhz...Ive got this CPU clocked at 2.9mhz and gets a windoes score of 6.4. Runs idle at a cool 28c with MX-2 thermal paste.
Pros: Runs cool! Easy to install. Great upgrade from original CPU. Runs any game i throw at it . CPUZ says it running at 2.66 not over clocked right out of the box. New Egg was fast with shipping as always.
Cons: Not a big CON but Core 2 CPUS should be less considering i7 and i5 CPUS are out and not to much more money. Wish it had 6mb of cash.
