    I have a Gateway laptop with: Mobile AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2.19 GHz. I have just ordered 1g RAM (max it will allow) and am in the process of putting in a new HD using Acronis True Image. Question: Should I look for a new CPU or is the one installed good enough for (non gaming) use? Thanks -John in San Antonio

    Laptop CPU's arent the easiest to change and are very difficult to find in stores, and at 2.19GHz there isn't a whole lot better that you can do. With only 1GB RAM, 2.2GHz should be great with most programs.
