Question about Dell Inspiron One 2305 Desktop Computer (AMD Athlon II X2 GB3GB) (DDPCEZ1P)
Well according to the dell website, upgrading to a Athlon II X2 240E @ 2.8GHz or a AMD Athlon II X4 610E @ 2.3GHz should work fine as there is a Inspiron One model that comes with either of these chips with no extra increase in the systems power supply.
With regards to the AMD Athlon II X2 255
I would not recommend this chip as it is more of a CPU for a tower case system and not an all-in-one. You will get heat issues as the CPU heat sink recommended for a AMD Athlon II X2 255 is much larger than the ones used in this Dell Inspiron One 2305. You must see the Dell Inspiron One 2305 as a sort of laptop.
Dell has specifically designed this system to run on a choice of 3 processors, namely:
AMD Athlon™ II X4 610E (2.3GHz/2MB cache)
AMD Athlon™ II X2 240E (2.8GHz/2MB cache)
AMD Athlon™ II X2 250U (1.6GHz/2MB cache)
You currently have the low end CPU, if you want to upgrade to a faster Dual Core option then the AMD Athlon™ II X2 240E @ 2.8GHz is the way to go. If you're thinking of going the way of Quad Core then get a AMD Athlon™ II X4 610E @ 2.3GHz. These are your only two options if you want a stable environment.
