Can anyone tell me if they know of benchmarks that compare the various CPU's available to the Dell XPS 1330. I just want to know if it is worth upgrading to one of these. I'm looking for bang for the buck.

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T8100 (2.1GHz/800Mhz FSB/3MB cache) [add $125 or $4/month1]
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T8300 (2.4GHz/800Mhz FSB/3MB cache) [add $175 or $6/month1]
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T9300 (2.5GHz/800Mhz FSB/6MB cache) [add $300 or $9/month1]
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T9500 (2.6GHz/800Mhz FSB/6MB cache) [add $575 or $18/month1]
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5750 (2.0GHz/667Mhz FSB/2MB cache) [Included in Price]

IF you're comfortable with messing around with your laptop, then what I would do is buy the cheapest option from dell, then buy a faster processor off of newegg or something, and replace it. Then you could sell the old proc or keep it for emergencies. The downside: More work and probably voids your warranty.

Thats not a bad idea. I have upgraded RAM and hard drives on laptops before. How much harder would the CPU be? I have plenty of experience building desktops.

I don't think it would be much harder. I've taken the entire bottom off of my laptop before. There's only a few screws keeping the HSF attached to the CPU. This was the farthest that gateway's warranty would let me go. :P
