Greetings, all.

I have aspirations of cracking open my Toshiba Satellite (A205-S7456) laptop to replace the 56K modem (stupidity + thunderstorm = fried) and was considering upgrading the processor while I have it apart. As of now it has an Intel Core2 Duo T5250 in it and was thinking of possibly upgrading to a 2GHz Core2 Duo or thereabouts.

Anyway, this is all contingent on me finding what socket I'd need. The only information I can find about the motherboard is that it's a Santa Rosa CRB, but I cannot find any real specs on it and I know there's some trickiness to it since Intel wasn't exactly clear on the socket types in these things. I'm wondering if there is a site or program that can give me more info as to whether I need a M or a P without tearing it down just to find out.

Processors I was thinking of are either:

Core2Duo T5750 (2GHz, 2MB, 667FSB)
Core2Duo T7200 (2GHz, 4MB, 667FSB) (not sure this will work)

Also, probably the most important question, will it even make a difference given that, other than the cache size on the T7200, we're just talking about the multiplier?

Thanks for any help one can give...
