What is difference between centrino and pentium m??????


Processor wise there is no difference, Centrino is just a branding initiative by Intel and it consists of..
Pentium M Processor(now with the release of the Core Duo/Solo, they are also included)
Intel Chipset
Intel Wireless
If a laptop uses all of these parts then it is branded as a Centrino and you get a "Centrino" sticker slapped onto the laptop. If one of them is different then you get the regular Pentium M sticker.

There is no other 'real' benefits of being branded as a Centrino. It is just one of the many marketing tactics used by Intel.

IBM ThinkPad R40 Intel Centrino Upgrade to Intel Core 2 Duo?


According to system specs your system is not compatible with the Core 2 Duo or Centrino Core 2 Duo. To upgrade to those chips you would need to replace the motherboard with one capable of running those chips. If you decided to do that you would almost surely need new RAM as newer boards use newer technology. By the time you did this the upgrade would not be cost effective. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

My borther has a 390x ibm thinkpad 2626 and he is looking for a upgraded processor


Current processor should be a Pentium III 450 MHz.
As far as I know, the standard RAM os 64 MB and maximum RAM is 512 MB. Even a memory upgrade will cost you around 80$.

I would honestly suggest to forget a processor upgrade because it will cost you a lot of money. Probably more than a new laptop.
Sorry...

Ibm


The 2.8 is a good processor and you won't be able to tell much if any difference if you upgrade to the 3.0. Upgrade the memory to 1g, this will make a huge difference. You're welcome.

Wireless


Since you have the slot for the wireless card, you can purchase an internal card for the machine, try Price Watch or Ebay. On the processor, the G40 came out with Pentium 4 2.0ghz, 2.4ghz, 2.6ghz, and 3.0ghz. any of these will work as long as they were designed for IBM Thinkpad. I buy most of the processors for my shop off Ebay. I would check there. If you do buy from Ebay, be sure that the processor came from an IBM machine.

Ibm thinkpad 2647


Your limited with the T20 series, the biggest you can go is 1ghz. Try the Pentium M chip, make sure that it's the same mhz (frequency) that's in it now, the board frequency matches the processor frequency. (either a 100 mhz or 133 mhz, you can tell by what memory it uses PC100 or PC133)
