Summary: For the price works equivalently well for upgrading a laptop to a faster processor for new life after warranty and end of life issues have gone by. Good for not spending more money on a laptop that will just be another second hand antique 8-15 months after you buy it and no more support is given by the manufacturer, especially BIOS updates.
Excerpt: I got this processor with a Dell Inspiron 1440 from a family member to replace an old Dell Inspiron 6400 whose battery had failed. Now this was a fair bit of a jump from the 1.66GHz T2200 that was in the old laptop so I had no issue with it. One thing that seems to be a common theme with these processors is the fact that they heat up a fair bit so keep that in mind.
