Hm....but that doesn't mean the lappy would support it. Since it's a 1st gen CPU he's got in there, I doubt ASUS updated their BIOS for it after the 2nd gen came out. Also, assuming that the CPU is removable...or soldered in.
Yeah, that's basically what I told him in the other thread, but I checked the board for that model, and it does
have an actual socket.
I would bet my house on it only being able to support first gen CPU's though.
