I have a 2009 Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop that I had stopped using due to it being slow and I getting a faster PC.

It runs Windows 10.

It uses the AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 processor.

I can get an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-68 for it, but am unsure which one I need.

This one is $24

This one says call for quote.

Or is there a better processor than those that will work and isn't expensive?

It's more of a want to find a use for it given I replaced the screen maybe 2-3 years ago. I figure maybe it would be useful for streaming music or some other simple tasks.
 
This laptop is technically way slower than that other Core 2 machine you were running for a bit. Total junker, and the IGP isn't even decent enough for retro gaming.
 
True, however I hate to trash it given it has a new screen.

Would it be possible to put Linux on it and get more use out of it that way?
