Dell did ship these with Phenom II-X4 CPUs, so most of the Socket S1-G4 CPUs should work.  Stick to models with identical or similar power requirements - installing a CPU that requires more power than the original, is an invitation to system instability.

The Dell inspiron m5010 has very good cooling so ht 35 watt won't be a problem.

Remember though it will drain your battery a little faster when it is taxed I ie. when video gaming.

I just upgraded my ram ( by the way this system will handle more than 8 gigs) and also upgraded to an ssd drive.

I am currently researching processors but may decide on a motherboard upgrade first.

Hi EJN63, 

     I don't work much with AMD laptops. but I have an M5010 with 7beep. Because I'm trying to rule out the mainboard itself of failure I bought the dirt cheapest S1G4 processor I could find. It's a Turion II Dual Core Mobile P560. THE POWER DIFFERENCE between this one and the original Phenom that came with it is 10W where the Turion is a 25W TDP and the Phenom is 35W. I don't suspect this will cause problems but you appear to understand AMD processors better than I do so I thought it worth checking. Thanks, Nathan
