I just got an Acer 5517-5997 which is the TL-20@1.6ghz. It came with 3gb of RAM. Google spec came up with ATI Radeon X1200 for video card. Mine has the HD3200.

Many forums including here talk about upgrading the S1 socket CPU. My question is if i just jump from 1.6 single to duo core, will i see much changes? I know to watch HD video smoothly you need at least duo core and good video card. I think the video card is HD ready.

2nd, after upgrade, will the x2 draw more heat? I'm not planning to OC or anything just want a little more speed to watch video at 1080. Video like HD from youtube.

Well, X2 1.8 is installed. Every thing seems to be running smooth. It's not that hot, maybe because I'm not using it to the max. Hope using just regular compound, and not the quick silver, doesn't affect the heat. Will update more once get connected to wifi and download some monitor programs.

Oh yea, single 1.6 to dual 1.8!!!
