    heres the score i have 2 laptops and acer aspire 3660 and a HP510

    The Acer having an Intel Celeron M 420 1.6ghz
    The Hp has a 2.1ghz P4

    what im after is a list of cpus that will fit the appropriate socket on the motherboard

    the markings on the zif sockets are as follows

    acer ( Socket 478 MT)

    HP (Socket 478 MB)

    now if i put either of those into Google i find not alot.

    i know that they have a very Slightly different pin arrangement on the cpus

    am i right in assuming that socket 478 MT will only fit celeron class cpus
    and the socket 478 MB may have the possibility for a Intel core2 ( not likely as the bios wont support it bit if i could find the appropriate bios flash from the manufacture then it may work)

    incase you got lost in my rambling i want a list of cpus that will fit in the above sockets.


    edit:- i think i have answered my own question

    socket 478m T is celeron class
    socket 478M B is Pentium 4 M class

    any confirmation of this would be greatly appreciated thankyou
