    As you probably know CPU upgrade is not supported so it is not so easy as you probably think, I mean if you want a list with processors that you can use.

    More about that you can read on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm
    I just hope someone has made such upgrade and can post report about it.

    In my opinion there is no reason for such critical upgrade. You can upgrade RAM to maximum and maybe use faster HDD to get more performance. Everything else can be pretty risky.

    Hi

    Your notebook supports the Mobile Intel(R) GL40 Express Chipset.
    You have to check what CPUs this chipset supports…
    If the chipset would support your favorite CPU, then you have good chances to get it running.

    But of course there is also an open BIOS compatibility question.
    In worst case the BIOS would not handle the new CPU
