    Hello all. Wanting to upgrade processor on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Want faster speeds for Home Audio recording purposes.

    Currently installed:
    Windows Vista Home
    Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73GHz
    2038MB of RAM
    32-Bit OS

    Any recommendation for what I can upgrade to?....

    Apparently these work: Intel Core 2 Duo T5250, T5450, T5550, T5750, T7250 or T8100 possibly even others.
    Upgrading processors in laptops is difficult and risky and can be hit and miss since most manufacturer's do not post what upgrades will work.

    You may also benefit from a faster hard drive depending on exactly what you are doing. An Solid State Drive will significantly improve drive performance.

    What upgrades does Dell list of you laptop: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/DellPartsFamily.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=19&s=dhs&~ck=anavml

    Sometimes its just better to sell an older laptop and buy a completely new one.
