I have a dell inspiron 1150 and 5160, they look very alike. Does anyone know if i can put the 3.06 mobile pentium 4 processor from my 5160 into the 1150?
Only difference is the fan is much bigger on the 5160 and it runs very hot. The 1150 has a celeron 2.8 and the fan runs slow or not at all.
Is there any other significant differences between these two laptops ?
While the CPU will work, it's a power hog and runs hot -- I would not try it without moving the larger fan to the 1150 (if that's possible). The Celeron CPU is the reason why one system runs much cooler than the other -- Intel had pushed the mobile P4 further than it could go and ultimately had to redesign the chip to make it more efficient - - which led to the Core CPU line.
