Ok, so I just shipped back a defective HP TC4400 I bought, and now I am waiting for my replacement to arrive. In the meantime I was researching the CPU installed in it, and I wanted to find out what the max it can be upgraded to. I have found this spec sheet on the TC4400 (http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/1244
The one that is being mailed back to me has the Intel Core Duo Processor T2500 (2.0-GHz, 667-MHz FSB, 2-MB L2 cache)
I see that it also supports the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7200 (2.0-GHz, 667-MHz FSB, 4-MB L2 cache)
I have a spare one of these sitting here and trying to plan out my strategy for when it arrives! My fiance has a Dell laptop with the T7200 CPU, and from what I have read, I can easily bump hers up to the T7700. I would prefer to use the T7700 in mine, but I am not opposed to swapping her T7200 out into mine and upgrading hers to the T7700 if I can't do it.
I do see that the FSB is different on the T7700, jumping up to 800mhz. What would happen if I tried this in the TC4400? Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks for reading!

I don't have the answer to your question but I would like to know if you've managed to upgrade to T7700 successfully?
I am thinking of doing the same to my tc4400 t7200. I read in another forum it's possible to upgrade to t7600 which I would be happy to do. But yesterday I was offered a t7700 at almost half the price of t7600. Also what about t7800, would that be compatible do you know?
I would be grateful for your feedback.

Just found out T7700 is compatible with 965 chipset and not 945 which is installed in a TC4400. According to Intel the highest upgrade is T7600 (2.33).
