Is Turion64 works on a desktop motherboard?

My friend had a turion64 laptop. The screen was broken last week. He wants to make a new system with the remaining parts.

But I heard of that a turion64 can not be installed on an destop motherboard. Is it true?

He wants me to setup the system for him. Please help.

  5. Actually, I did tried to bid a turion64 on ebay. It is a 2nd hand, one month old. The final price is around 65 pounds.

    And I can remember there is an online retail sells laptop cpu include turion, but the price is around 200 to 300 pounds.
  6. My little vent.
    The turion chips are great. It's too bad all the laptop makers are too chickenshit to use it in a system that could actually compete with the PMs.
    Then again, Intel would probably just kill them anyhow.
  7. It is a 1.6Gz with 512kb L2 cache and only 35W power consumption.

    Market price is around £100 to £130.
  8. Which one?
  9. Is that the ML 28?
