CPU upgrade for Satellite 5205-S505

\015 I am considering upgrading the 2.2 Ghz Pentium 4-M CPU on my machine to a 2.6 Ghz one. Does anyone have experience doing so? How much work would it take, and what kind of performance boost can I expect to get?Thanks a lot!\015

Answers :

You would only get a marginal performance increase. If your laptop has 256Mb of RAM, increasing the RAM up to 1Gb (this model laptop cannot support more than 1Gb RAM) would boost the performance of the laptop.
