I am looking to buy a laptop with a mmc-1 mobile pentium 1 133mhz and upgrade it with a pentium 2 mobile. The mobile cpu guide said it is possible. Can someone tell me what laptop can i do this with?

Put me down for one vote for can't be done. I ain't sure but that don't sound right to me. Unless you can buy a special "overdrive" chip from evergreen or somebody I don't think you can put a p2 in a p1 spot mobile or otherwise. Where did you read that you could and why do you want to?

Here is what the cpu mobile mania guide says.

"Some users like Tom have been able to upgrade their notebook from a Pentium to a Pentium II in a snap.......Shut down the Notebook, replace the Pentium MMC-1 with the Pentium II MMC-1 or the Celeron MMC-1 and start with a new processor family."

So it is possible, does anyone know what laptop he used to do this?
