    While it looks like the chipset does support that cpu, you most likely will NOT be able to have it work.

    One big reason is that laptops are designed to operate [read cool] the parts they ship with. Even if you could install the cpu, it would overheat.

    Next big issue would be battery life. Those laptops have pretty poor battery life as it is; swap in a more power hungry cpu and you have little or no battery life.

    In short if you want a faster laptop, buy one. Do not expect to upgrade an existing one. The only upgrades you can generally do to a lappy is more ram or a larger hd.

    im not worried about the battery because i never use it.

    i read that a p4 m uses less power than a celeron?

    i have seen other easynote models with p4's in them so i thought it would be ok to upgrade?

    thanks
