Help on selecting a CPU for a laptop upgrade

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 4810t (timeline) and I was wanting to upgrade the CPU in it to a dual core. The single core thing just isn't doing it for me. I mainly use it for school and often multitask on it. I have noticed that the thing gets rather sluggish when I'm trying to do multiple things at once, which isn't surprising given the single core.

I looked at the CPUz of it and the thing has an Intel Core 2 solo (running at 1.4GHz) which is a socket p. I haven't yet done some research on CPUs for it, but I was hoping to get some refining on if I should and what type of dual core would work best. I'm thinking the Core 2 Duo, but I'm not sure the voltage requirements of the CPU and if my mainboard will be able to handle the extra load. I know my battery life will go down with a new CPU, I'm not too worried about that. I would just like a bit more performance from the thing.

Any suggestion would be greatly welcomed.

Thanks

So, I've been poking around the internet and I found this little jewel.

I've been looking on the Intel website as well, looking to make sure that this CPU will fit into my socket P. My CPUz says that it is a socket P (478) But it doesn't much more information than that. I wish I knew if this CPU would fit into the socket on my laptop. Can someone clarify this for me? On the Intel website it says that this is a socket PBGA479 or PPGA478. I think my Acer is the latter, the PPGA478, again, I'm not terribly certain as I don't know much about the laptop motherboard.

I;m not really sure. I was hoping that someone here would have more information for me about that. There is not a lot of information available for this laptop... though I'm not sure why. Perhaps I am not looking in the right place.
