    Acer doesn't show an upgrade CPU over the T4300. I don't think the QX9300 will work just because I've seen others trying to upgrade a T to a Q and it never worked.

    If you can find a seller that will take it back if it doesn't work, Give it a try.

    I would probably try the T9500 or T 9600 if I was going to upgrade that laptop. T4400 to T9600 has worked for me on a Dell.
