Good morning,

I have an HP Pavilion dv6-2120sp, my question is this I have AMD Turion II Ultra Dual-Core M620 2.5GHz processor, enjoyed the change of course for better, but do not know how to search or see what is compatible with my laptop, I've been confused.
Wanted to improve the performance of my computer know that I increase my processor to increase the memories, but wanted to at least 3.0 GHz or slightly more ...
May suggest some?

Att

I'd still offer the same advise as in the thread below on the HP dv6 - the best upgrade IME is an SSD, not a CPU.

You can't upgrade the processor in that laptop.

I don't think you understood my comment. My recommendation is not laptop model specific. I referenced the other thread because the recommendation is the same for all laptops with an HDD.

The point was that testing by numerous people has shown that ANY laptop with a HDD can see a bigger performance improvement by replacing the HDD with an SSD than you will see by replacing the CPU, because the HDD bottlenecks the system, regardless of the CPU model.

Found an old Core2Duo Dell laptop in the bin a few weeks ago..  Nothing wrong with it, just slow by todays standard.

Had a Windows XP sticker on the bottom of it..

Installed an SSD and Windows 7 64bit...  this thing now boots up in under 20 seconds and runs like butter..

An SSD makes even more improvement on a laptop than a desktop because the 2.5" HDD used in laptops are slower than molasses in Jan.

A SSD is a nice performance bump to extend the useful life of a laptop IME and that of many other folks. With SSD prices dropping they are a good value and down the road you can always remove it and use it in a desktop or other laptop if you desire.
