Summary: I was buy this processor to upgrade my laptop. Till now I was use an Intel T7300. After a lot of reading on the net I was found that this T9300 processor will be a good alternative and a good upgrade for my laptop MSI GX700 megabook. And they had right !!!
Summary: This was a great upgrade for my Dell Vostro 1500 - more cache, speed, same TDP and smaller litho means it's running a lot cooler, and most likely using less power as well. At the time, the t9500 was way pricier relative to this so it was a smart buy.
Summary: I bought this processor for my Dell Vostro 1500 as an upgrade. I went from a 2.0 to this 2.5 processor and it made a huge difference. The processor score in windows 7 went from 5.5 to 6.1. If your looking to upgrade, this one is a good upgrade at a decent price.
Summary: This is the absolute best Socket P (Intel) CPU for the money that you can buy. The 6MB of L2 cache makes this a screaming fast CPU. Performance is equal to i5 CPU and much better than an i3. The T9500 is .1 Ghz faster but at 2x the cost just not worth it unless you want bragging rights.
One fast chip for a reasonable price! Wonderful upgrade from 2.00 GHz!

Summary: Upgraded to this T9300 Processor in my laptop from the T7500. If you're a gamer or do video editing, you will notice a performance increase with this chip. It was worth the $60 I paid for it and being slightly under the T9500 and saving over $40 in comparison, this chip is overall the way to go. If you only do web surfing and only listen to music and watch videos and are already using a T7XXX processor or better, it won't be much of an upgrade for you.
Summary: Excellent processor upgrade for my old LG/MSI laptop. Run more low on idle (3% T9300 vs 15% T8100) and can take really more juice then the T8100. The temperature is lowest to, the exhaust fan is keeping cooler than before. I would definitively recommend it.
