Re: Processor Upgrade for Inspiron 1520
yes you are right, firstly and most importantly socket..you need a merom CPU with socket P, not M!
according to this:
the maximum upgrade you can get is T7800, T7700. Just double check. If I was you I would probably buy it on Ebay.
Please note that this an Ebay auction and it IS NOT mine, just to make things clear.I hope it helps.
