Summary: Upgraded my Dell Latitude D630 laptop from its original T7100 CPU to this T9300 CPU. My computer now has longer battery life and is much, much faster overall. I'll certainly get a few more good years out of this old workhorse. Don't waste your money on the T9500, as its only improvement over the T9300 is a marginal increase of 100 MHz in clock speed. Everything else in the specifications is the same.
Summary: The upgrade was smooth as podding, the process runs great, even at mere 200 MB free space on C:\drive , the processor does not hang nor slows the processing, It runs lot cooler with less noise.
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.
