    yes you can upgrade atleast as high as a T7700... probably all the way to the T9000's but so far the highest i have confirmed is the T7700

    MAKE SURE YOU BUY A SOCKET P CPU...

    we should have a T8300 confirmation within 3 to 5 days depending on shipping.... and with that pink slot you just follow the instructions on the very first POST in this thread

    if you upgrade RAM make sure to buy PC5300 or PC6400 because when the CPU FSB increases to 667,,, the RAM speeds jump up to match it...

    but if you go w/ an 800mhz FSB CPU,, the RAM's max speed is ALWAYS LIMITED TO 667Mhz max by the i965 chipset.... but purchasing PC6400 ram might get you ram w/ lower latency times.. meaning faster memory reads and writes...


    i also have another aspire 5315 thread that is on the first or second page of the ACER threads... it has a lot of great info including how to DOWNGRADE from VISTA to WINDOWS XP....

    this laptop will shock you when upgraded to 2G RAM,, a Core2Duo CPU running XP,,, you'd swear it was a different laptop....

    i've got $495 plus a few $$ tax and shipping in mine... and i've had that much fun just mod'ing it!!!

    POST A FEW MORE TIMES or send me an email address... i have a link u may need


    later,
    bigO

    Hey Bigozone,
    first of all, nice thread. I've got aspire 5315-2875.
    I'm a real noob to modding pc.
    I just want to ask you one question for now. Where can I buy the mobile CPU??
    I live in Canada I tried to go to every computer shop I could find and none of them sell mobile CPU. They suggested desktop CPU 'cause they said it will be ok. However, desktop PC is hotter and I dont want any hole below my laptop because of the heat. So I'm pretty much stuck here can someone help me please....

    DESKTOP CPUS will not fit the 5315... see the links to CPU GUIDES in my other thread
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=251130

    take the cover off the back of your laptop... look for a PINK socket under the heatsink

    i've bought 5 used moblie CPUs from EBAY... all work great

    just search for CORE 2 DUO SLA

    should return socket P mobile core2duos

    as long as it's socket p it should work.

    im about too order a T8100.

    the bigo seems to think even the t9xxxx series would work. the only way is to try. and from people too post there success's or failures
    i shall hopefully reply with a success of my t8100 upgrade in a week or so :D

    thats a good price. though

    he does say "No returns."

    i personally like buying new computer parts. im just a skeptical bastard lol !

    i KNOW FORSURE the T7700 and lower socketP CPUs are supported.. and i have seen 1 report of a T8100 working... plus the fact that acer is now selling T8300 CPUs with this motherboard (in Aspire 7720) but they use the same BIOS so i see no reason why we can't upgrade to T8100 or higher..

    thanks for the recognization and support
