@Tuus: That is my dilemma. The T5500 is cheap, but it is 1.66Ghz. A T2700 is 2.3 Ghz, but it is quite expansive. Because of the 3 Gb limit for my T60, I am planning to use 32bit Win7. Does a Core 2 Duo processor have a real benefit in this configuration, even it is 1.6 Ghz? Which processor to choose? Your advices are highly appreciated.

Thank you again! I have checked CPUs on FleaBay, a T5500 is very cheap, and a T7200 is around 50 bucks, so I am thinking about to replace the exixting T2400 with one of them. I'd have never imagined that my laptop is that upgradable!

On the linked page there is: the biggest performance gains are associated with 3D rendering and media encoding tasks.
If I am an ordinary user, meaning Lotus Notes/Symphony, web browsing/surfing, and 5250 emulation, does it worth to choose t5600 vs. 2700?
