Summary: Brought an old Inspiron 1545 back to life after years of it being out of service. Noticed that the original CPU (Intel Celeron 900) was woefully bad with Windows 7. If you tried to watch a Youtube video and do anything else the audio constantly cut out and even the movement of the mousepad sent it over the edge into 100% usage at times. To make a long story short, this Dual-Core popped right in it's place. Put some heatsink on it and reinstalled in about 5 mins.
Summary: Worked perfectly in my Inspiron 1525 laptop as a replacement for the stock Celeron 550. Fit in the Socket P motherboard without any issues. Made a night and day difference in the performance of the laptop!
Summary: amazing processor, i put it in my compaq cq56-219wm laptop which had the celeron 900,and doubled the speed. very happy with this processor. excellent product, laptop recognized it right away with no problems whatsoever. it runs about 95-105 degrees with multiple applications open, so there is no heat issue. i also only paid 25 bucks for it so for the price its an amazing bargain...
Summary: This chip has great performance and if it had more L2 cache it would be labeled a Core2Duo. A Pentium Dual core such as this is simply a Core2Duo with half the L2-cache disabled. 90% of the time it will be pretty much just as quick as the equivalent MHz Core2Duo, though 100% of the time it will be a fraction of the cost. Uses less power and runs cooler than my old Celeron 585!
Summary: This is part of my purchases is an attempt to have a Blu-ray capable laptop for less money. The accessibility of the processor makes this job an easy fix for the moderate equipped computer geek. A 2Ghz. is suggested as sufficient for smooth Blu-ray playback, I decided to give this a try.
