    I have a dell B130 laptop with this processor in it (Intel 1.4Ghz Celeron M (SL86K) processor, 478-pin, 400mhz bus speed, 1mb cache ) and would like to know if I can upgrade it to something better? If you need other specs please let me know. Thanks

    I doubt it. A Laptop CPU is pretty hard to find.....

    Even so, why do you want to upgrade? I realize that the CPU is a tad slow, but odds are that if the CPU is slow, so is graphics, ram, etc.... Dont expect a higher clockspeed to work miricles for you

    steven is correct. your whole laptop is slow enough to the point that a cpu upgrade probably wouldn't be that beneficial.. save your money

    Everyone is right as I believe the highest you can go is 2.0 P4 and that won't make that much difference as it will cost you too much. Build up the ram to the max which is probably a gb and you will see more and ram is cheap these days.
