Hacker ups Eee to 1.2GHz

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/02...ee_to_1_2ghz/1

Hardware hacker guryhwa has successfully replaced the built-in Celeron 900MHz processor in his Eee PC 701 with a much beefier 1.2GHz Pentium-M unit for a nice speed boost.

I will give this a go if anyone is willing to lend me their eeePC and a PentiumM chip.
I take no responsibility for any damage caused to the device or myself.

i think that if i tried that i would not only fail to solder the cpu to the motherboard but id probably end up soldering a cat to the motherboard by mistake

^^^ That would be a one of a kind mod in any event.

Not sure I'd trust myself soldering anything that delicate tbh.
