I am looking to up grade my Sony, which works fine as is but I want duo-core and more ram. Do you have any idea what motherboards will fit this case and what additional power and cooling requirements would be needed?

Unfortunately unless your as pro with soldering and creating your own connections there is just no way to upgrade your motherboard. All that you can upgrade is more ram and a bigger harddrive. Nothing else really. Also if you do go ahead and try soldering in upgrades go in at your own risk because more than likely you will mess something up and you will get yourself an expensive paperweight.

Notebook boards usually aren't interchangeable, someone with experience with sony laptops may be able to help you with a solution. Additional RAM is a great upgrade.
