I have an Acer Aspire AS5515 with a 1.6 GHz Athlon 2650e. I am curious what my upgrade options are for this system. I have had a hard time finding much documentation/info from Acer. I have the latest bios installed (dated 5/21/09). Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

There is a chance it might be embedded to the motherboard
I suggest you to open the laptop and take a look first

Oh I actually forgot it is possible since it is actually AM2 compatible
But it seems a lot hotter TDP from 35 to 45 Watt...
Not going to do it since my current processor reach the thermal limits
If you are going to do it use AS5 or MX3 as the thermal paste
Anyone hoping to load a Phenom II X4 AM2 Processor on laptops?

take a look or download this PDF if you are still looking to upgrade CPU, Memory, HDD, Etc. http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/aspire%205515.pdf
it is very intensive in part replacement/compatibility and how to disassemble/reassemble your Acer Aspire 5515

@Weinter: as far as i know and have read, the mainboard for the 5515 is not Phenom compatible. also because of the Phenom's high wattage(80w+), i would not recommend inside a laptop/notebook.

@brando0525: This processor is better than the one posted http://www.newegg.com/Product/...x?Item=N82E16819103279 and is compatible with the Aspire 5515.

If you're looking for other replacement parts for the 5515, look on Newegg.com for the wishlist "Acer Aspire 5515 Parts". It has the easiest replaceable parts compiled into one simple list.

Dragonfly Out.
