Well, that processor will NOT underclock to 800MHz FSB, so make sure your laptop motherboard can do a 1066MHz FSB without overclocking.

And because it's going from 65nm to 45nm, you will most likely need to perform a BIOS update as well, but both of them are Socket P processors, so it will physically fit.

ok i found a different one, pretty sure this one will work since the fsb is the same and i looked up on forums about people putting it into the laptop i have but i wanted a expert opinion. i guess this is the fastest processor for socket p at 800 mhz fsb. thanks for your help.
