Hi all,

I have a Packard Bell iMedia S2984 Intel Celeron N305 1.6ghz and I'm finding the processing speed too slow, even basic web pages. Can anyone recommend a good replacement processor that can handle basic photoshop, web browsing and word processing?

don't think it's possible for you to upgrade the cpu because i think it is soldered onto the motherboard.
specs of your cpu :- http://ark.intel.com...-up-to-2_16-GHz
notice where it says "Sockets Supported  FCBGA1170"
from my understanding the BGA part means ball grid array which is a soldered socket so you can't easily remove and replace the cpu like you can with other socket types like say a desktop socket lga 1151.
