Processor upgrade - Sony Vaio VPCL13M1E

I am thinking about upgrading the processor of my all-in-one (which is an Intel E7500 Core 2 Duo, chipset Intel P43 Express)
to an E8500 which (according to compatibility lists) is supposed to be compatible with the the chipset fitted

Can anybody comment on whether this would be ok?

Thanks for the heads up. I am upgrading the memory from 4GB to 8GB that should make a difference. I'll try the SSD upgrade as well.

I didn't upgrade the RAM.

For what I use it for, the move to SSD was my bang for the buck.

The chipset may support the new cpu but that does not mean the sony bios will.

If you can get the cpu cheap try it.
