I have an Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 cpu.
2.4 GHz
800MHz FSB
3MB L2 cache
Socket P I think (for laptops)

What price could I expect to ask on Trademe or similar?

Im not sure how many laptops support cpu changes but id say maybe $120-$150 at a guess

That may be the price range if you can find a buyer. However you may find it will take weeks of relisting before you find anyone even slightly interested, if ever.

Laptops get scrapped at least 10 times as frequently as their CPUs fail, so laptop CPUs are in plentiful supply and very very low demand.

How would one tell if this cpu would fit there lappy? Mine is a core 2 1.86ghz so putting a 2.4 in could be beneficial if it fitted

Look up your CPU and check if it's a Socket P
