I have a old laptop, and  it is socketed. What I want to know, is what cpu will be the best upgrade? It curently has a 1c/1t athlon 64 tf-20 1.6ghz. It has a option for a 25w CPU, so im willing to try up to a 31w cpu. If anyone knows anything about the Aspire 5532 cooling system, and would know it can take a 35w cpu, tell me please. I am also upgrading to 4gb of ram, and a new wifi card, and maybe a cheep ssd.  I want to be ably to use this a bit more than i do now.

For what? A fancy doorstop?

A single core CPU in this day and age will get crushed online.

 

You are throwing good money after bad. By the time you've gotten a new wifi card, new CPU, more ram and ssd, you'll have dropped close to 100$ into a system that at best will be worth 25$ (and that's *after* you've upgraded it)

 

Save your cash and buy something made this century.

Ummm.... 2008 is this century though? Anyways, this is great for old windows 7 games, which i have a lot of. Btw, memory is 10$us for the new kit, the cpu is 5$us off of ebay. I have a wifi chip somewhere, but i need to find it, and the ssd would be 20$ if i could find a fatty dove one. 35$.  For a world of new preformance.

I'm pretty sure they didn't mean it literally.

 


I don't think that any of these chips can even run 1 tab of youtube properly...

the current one can. Also some how, my grandfather was able to use this loptop for his sermon (he is a pastor) until 1.5 yrs ago.

So is a VM, just trying to save you some money...

You biggest challenge will be cooling it. Going from 25w to 31w may not seem like much, but if the laptop wasn't designed to cool more than a 25w CPU, you are going to have issues.

But in any case, the more cores/threads you can get, generally speaking the better off you will be
