  1. Upgrading a laptop cpu isn't recommended. It's a guessing game sometimes since no bios updates are available that I know of. Some 478 cpus have hyperthreading support, but no dual cores.
  2. Best way to upgrade a laptop CPU is simply replace the laptop.
  3. I don't think they made a dual core pentium M. The previous posters are correct. Not worth the trouble. Just buy a cheapie laptop and you will have better results.
  4. The platform for this cpu is as follows Intel Pentium M processor 725a (2mb l2 cache, 1.60ghz 400 mhz fsb) 730/740/750/760/770 (2mb l2 cache, 1.60/1.73/1.86/2/2.13 ghz,533 mhz fsb)or higher intel Celeron M processor 370 (1mb l2 cache, 1.60ghz 400 mhz fsb) or higher
    Intel 915pm/915gm express chipset

    Does this help to pick the best cpu
    ? would it be the 770?
    or a celeron m processor?
    Don't mean to be a pain but just half to ask these questions?

    Thanxs

    none, getting a new laptop is honestly the best idea, yes the best you can drop in there is faster, but only marginally and you probably won't even notice the difference
  6. Another vote for replacing the laptop overall.
