    OK. Not necessarily gonna make the swap, just wondering what all would need to be done since the MoBo for my laptop is more readily available in the intel format.. I have an HP dv2214us which is notorious for the motherboard going bad. I had it fixed at a shop and that voided my recall eligibility. This will be the 4th motherboard I buy and I was thinking of going intel since they are in better supply which makes them more affordable. I would love to off the Laptop altogether, but I can't afford a new one. And if I can get a new Mobo for $150-180, I would rather do that instead.. In regards to my question, I assume it would actually be cheaper to buy a new laptop compared to making the switch... But, like I said, I am just looking for info...

    Thanks!

    laptops and desktops are two entirely different types of computers
    - most desktops use so-called 'standard' types of components in their construction
    - laptops are very 'propriatary' in their component usage in construction

    you could download the 'REPAIR' manuals for each and then start comparing
    you might then contact hp and see what the costs are for the different components
    -OR-
    buy a 'for-parts-only' unit from ebay or something - and...........
