CPU upgrade on Amilo Xi 1546

Postby isourmel » Thu Aug 07, 2008 10:17 am

I own an Amilo Xi 1546. It has the Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 CPU and I am thinking if I should upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo T7200. Does it worth it? Also should I update the Bios? Is it a difficult procedure? Thanks in advance for your help

Upgrading the CPU might increase the performance significantly. This depends on your applications.
Updating the Bios isn't really difficult but potentially dangerous. If it fails your notebook might not work anymore. You should only update it if you know that you need a feature of the new Bios that your current one doesn't have.
