Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook
Yes, you should be able to upgrade the CPU. The 700m uses a Pentium M CPU running at a 400MHz FSB (or Celeron M at 400MHz FSB). It is compatible with both the old 'Banias' based chip (1MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 1.7GHz) as well as the 'Dothan' based chip (2MB L2 cache, up to a maximum 2.1GHz). All new orders ship with the newer and superior Dothan based chips now (unless the Celeron is chosen), and I suggest you stick to that path when upgrading... the only advantage of the Banias based chips are lower power consumption at the low speedstep setting coming at the cost of some performance. Since these are intended to be portable semi-desktop replacements the more powerful Dothans are preferred.
Don't forget some Thermal paste when installing a new CPU or you may encounter some heat issues which can cause serious damage.
