Toshiba 730XCDT CPU

Hi,

I am curently using a Tosh Tecra 730XCDT running at 150mhz Intel MMX CPU. I was wondering whether it is possible to upgrade the CPU. If so, any recommendation?? The RAM is 144MB.

Thanks

Toshiba site for your laptop:

Your Ram is already maxed out (16MB built-in plus a single memory expansion slot for a maximum of one 128MB memory module.

It doesn't look like your CPU is uprgradeable ---- probably is  permanently afixed to the motherboard

I read somewhere it can be upgraded using a MMX with 233mhz which have the same pin. It just a matter of plug & play. Kindly confirmed pls.
Thanks

Well, maybe you can...but how much difference is 83MHz going to make?  The answer: not much.  Also, generally the CPU is not swappable on a laptop like it is on a desktop machine, you can't just unplug it.

Sorry.
