hello so i have a broken hp dv4 with a 2.10ghz t6500 (core 2 duo) and i wanted to put it into my other laptop which is a asus k50ij (2.3ghz t4500 intel pentium) so i was wondering which would be faster? would the t6500 be because of the 2 MB L2 Cache, which is 1mb more then the t4500? or should i keep it the t4500 because it's a 2.3ghz compared to the t6500 at 2.10ghz?

Hello.
2.10ghz t6500 is faster. (1mb more cache in a notebook is a good boost)
By the way check if there is compatibility problem changing the CPU`s cause in laptops for example in HP the motherboards are coming registered for a type of CPU. Hope this is not a problem with ASUS laptop , a test will let as know.
Have fun (dont miss any screw i have found that the hard way :pfff:  ) and good luck.

What are you using the laptop for?
It might not be worth your trouble to make the switch back.

For the first two - it's not worth the trouble. You wouldn't notice the difference.

If you do a fair amount of work with Photoshop and Illustrator (+2hr a day or so) you might want to think about switching back. Again, there isn't a huge difference in performance. T6500 actually did better in some benchmarks where the cache difference was useful (SuperPI 32M for example) even if it did rank a bit lower overall.

For routine multi-tasking the T4500 would be fastest of the two.
It's long sessions with Photoshop and Illustrator where I think T6500 might closeu p the gap.
