    Default T9600 vs T9900

    I've got a T9600 in my Dell SXPS 16 and was wondering if I bought a T9900 down the road (it's the most my laptop can upgrade) if it would make this computer a little snappier and basically extend it's life to last longer without needing replacement.

    2.8GHz -> 3.06GHz; you probably would not notice the difference.

    In my opinion, you would be better off purchasing a SSD instead, when the prices come around.

    I doubt at this time the price would make it a worthy upgrade. The T9600 sells for 550 dollars on new egg and I don't know if the T9900 will be mas retail or not just spotted one on ebay for 450. If the price comes down you might find one cheap used later on or something.

    With decent ram the T9600 should overclock upwards of 3.2 Ghz I will tell you soon, as I'm gonna drop one in my laptop in about a week.

    I recently upgraded from a T9600 to a X9100 (exactly the same as T9900 but with higher TDP). I found there was a little performance bump, especially in CPU intensive tasks such as working with photoshop, but if you're going to be using it for basic apps, it might not be worth your while to upgrade your CPU just yet.

    As far as I know, the current mac notebooks use BGA package cpu's which are soldered to the motherboard, not socketed and hence cannot be upgraded.

    If you do upgrade, i would highly suggest buying from ebay. Any other place (like newegg) will sell it for much, much higher...

    I recently made the same upgrade as David as well, and it does make a small, but noticeable, difference. I sold my T9600 to offset the cost, and ended up paying a total of $30 for the X9100 (es) upgrade. If you'll spend anything more than $75 on the upgrade, it's not worth it.

    I replaced P8400 with T9800 and
    Sold P8400 so T9800 cost me 140 pounds
    Its better performance ..
    I still can sell T9800 for more and buy T9900 ..
