Thanks! No reason in particular. I am building a desktop with the i7 and wanted to see if I could get my laptop running at the same speed. But it isn't necessary. Again, thanks for the help and I just may end up upgrading the laptop to the core 2 duo T9500.
It should technically work since gateway did offer that model with that CPU but you might need to update bios if you do also you might want to check with gateway before you do.
