Hi ya can anyone tell me if it is possible, Im wanting to upgrade my processor from a celeron m 430@1.73 to a core 2 duo. I have the i945gm chipset. Can anyone please advise on what is the best option for this, and if it can be done.

Thanks for looking

Would it be possible to be more specific about your motherboard? And what CPU you're looking for? Your Lenovo's mobo might not be able to support the newer processor anway.

Hi ya I have fitted a Core 2 Duo T5500 and I must say it is running like a charm. It was a bit confussing as cpu-z says that it is a socket 479. Where as the socket m is 478 but I was assured that they were compatable. Thanks for looking :lol:
