    I have a hp pavilion DV7-1273CL. The processor is a Intel Core2 Duo Processor T6400. I want to go faster. Whats the next one or two steps up than my original processor, and what will fit my dv7-1273CL? Thank you

    In most laptops the Processor is not upgradeable. A Laptop of that vintage if it is upgradeable, the upgrade plus the labor would probably be as much as the laptop is worth. And it would not add appreciably to it's value.

    It comes with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit and 4 GB of RAM.

    It's running a 64-bit operating system, so you should max it out with 8 GB of RAM.

    It uses 200-pin DDR2 PC2-6400(DDR2-800), 1.8 volt, unbuffered, non-ECC SODIMM modules.


    As Jay already said, the majority of laptops aren't processor-upgradeable.

    Adding more RAM is usually the only hardware upgrade option.
