    Is the T5300 compatible?


      I'm tyring to quickly beef up a 3 year-old laptop. I can't find the motherboard number, and I'm too lazy to open it up. I know it has an Intel Celeron M 430 in it, but that is a single core. I looked for a dual core with the same FSB as it, and the T5300 looks like a good, cheap choice. The problem is I don't know if it'll work. From what I've gathered online, the 430 is a socket 478 and 478-pin micro FCPGA. Now, the T5300 is a socket 479 and 478-pin micro FCPGA. As far as I know, I just need the same socket processor. Is the T5300 the same socket as the 430?
