Help upgrading from Celeron 723

Hello,

I'm in need of some advice on upgrading my acer timeline 5410.

currently it has a celeron 723 (1.2GHz, 800MHz) Socket P 478

The Laptop obviously isnt built to run anything that requires a lot of power, but i would like to upgrade the procesor to allow it to be a bit more useful.

what is it that would determine what i can and cannot upgrade to?

could i get a core 2 due in the laptop or would i have to settle for a Pentium4?

here are two that i have looked at...

Both are for laptops and both are socket P, one is 800Mhz and one is 533MHz

any help would be much appreciated

  1. You can compare all CPUs here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php

    You can search for the CPU to buy here: http://www.pricewatch.com/gallery/cpu/socket_478

    from what I see it would not be worth spending the time.
  2. thank you for that.

    am i right in saying that everything that is compared with the celeron 478 is compatible?
