Hello,

I have an IBM ThinkPad X30 that has been a real workhorse for me for years. It's durable, compact and efficient, but it's starting to slow down.

Aside from upgrading the RAM, presently 504MB, can I also upgrade the processor? It has a Pentium III M 1.2ghz CPU. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You will need to swap out for a better motherboard if you want to use a new CPU (Like the Pentium 4). You'd be better off upgrading to a new computer if you needed a better CPU.

Good luck,
