Under the "Penryn QC" area, referring to the core 2 quad, it states that there are reports that it is a socket P' [sic] and as such may not be compatible with standard socket P motherboards.  So you should be absolutely sure if you decide to try the quad core.

Your first upgrade choice would probably be to max out the ram.

What laptop, or motherboard, is in the laptop?  It may be easier to look up the motherboard details to find if it supports the quad core or not.

 

But unless you can find a cheap used cpu, then it wouldn't be worth the cost for this upgrade.  Your cpu is 2.3ghz which is about the fastest that will fit.  Adding 2 more cores might help in certain situations but it probably won't be a lot.

 

Is your computer just not as fast as before, or are you doing more on it?  Maybe it just needs cleaned up?  Depending on what you are doing on the computer, there are other upgrade routes I would consider before changing this cpu.  Like ram or an ssd.

An ssd would make a much better improvement than ram would.

Additional memory and an SSD would both be worthwhile upgrades, and like FG I'd get those two upgrades first and then see how things feel to you.

A few years ago I was really into modding out my laptops -replacing CPU's, swapping GPU's, replacing motherboards so that I got the newer revision, etc...

 

What I can tell you from this experience is that what you wan to do is try to find an example of your laptop on the web equipped with the CPU you want to swap. Unless Dell specifically released a N5030 with a quad core, it won't work. There's a lot of other things to consider, like CPU TDP, chipset, and BIOS limitations that can get in the way of a clean swap. 

 

With the money you'd spend on a used QC on eBay, I'd say you're better off buying a used laptop with a first or second generation i-series CPU. Laptops equipped with those are no longer that expensive on the used market, and you'll get WAY better performance versus upgrading that N5030.

it appears that some socket p's are different than others.  yours appears to be an exception that does not support it
