    Intel Celeron M 350 Upgrade Path - Where to now?

    dwbeattie

      Good afternoon,

       

      I have an old Clevo M375S laptop which currently has an Intel Celeron M 1.3 Mhz 350 CPU. Unfortunately I do not know the Motherboard type or model.

       

      I am very keen indeed to upgrade this within the machine but I am not sure what the path would be and which CPU to go for?

      I have upgraded the RAM to 2Gb and cannot go any higher so to improve performance further I wanted to go with the CPU.

       

      Can anyone provide any suggestions around this?

       

      The exact CPU at this time is intel cleron M 350 1300 400mhz 1mb

       

      I have been looking at 1.7Ghz Intel Celeron M but also at 2.0 and 2.4 Mobile Intel Celeron CPU?

      Unfortunately information on this laptop is scarce so it was suggested that as long as I stay with the same family it should be OK.

       

      I know what some may say.....Buy a new laptop...just can't afford that right now so wanted to go with the upgrade.

       

      Any help or suggestions that you can provide would be appreciated.

       

      Kind Regards,

      Dave

          Check at CPU World web site you might fine more Info on the celrons there. What Kind of HD interface do you have , If it's a SATA you may want to leave the CPU alone and get a SSD HD You will get a major performance boast just by changing Hard drives. I did this with a older HP laptop and now it's like a New Machine. and I had a 1.6 Core 2 Duo. . Now it runs like it has a quad core.
