Are there any services that can upgrade soldered CPUs?
Plenty of places pop up with a google search for bga reball service
Costs last time I heard ran in the $200-$300 and up range for the service, plus shipping both ways.
Did you manage to find a MPC7448? Searching around those things cost a small fortune, and they're soldered on boards.
A 1.7GHz chip costs $330 from Mouser.
Well, it sounds like a plan then. $530-$630 (on a laptop worth less than $300) for absolutely no increase in performance, if your current clock speed from the other thread is true. Not quite up to Willamette Pentium 4 performance, but you get what you get. lol
I'm not sure if it fits your application or budget, but if you're intending on swapping the part semi-regularly you may want to consider a BGA socket. Something like: http://www.advanced.com/products/bga-socketing-systems/flip-top-bga-test-sockets
Holy thread necro, batman.
Mods, can you get rid of this joker "Bob Wettermann"
