I have Toshiba Satellite L25-S1192 laptop with a gig of RAM in it. It has 1.5GHz processor in it and I'd like to know how big of a processor I can put in it.
I have looked on the net and can't find an answer. Any help ?

You probably cannot replace the CPU. First, cracking open the case will void your warranty. Second, some laptops have the CPU soldered onto the the motherboard, making it very difficult, if not impossible, to replace them. Other laptops do use traditional sockets where you can replace the CPU, though it takes some work and if you make a mistake, your laptop becomes a door stop. I've heard of mods to certain laptop CPU's involving pin removal, but that is very advanced and prone to failure. Given the age of the machine, you may be better off simply getting a new one since you're most likely going to be limited to old, not the re-released, Pentium M (Dothan) models.

and you will never know the difference. The only difference between the Pentium M and the Celeron M is 2 vs 1 meg of L2. Speed is the same. There is no guarantee your motherboard's BIOS will even recognize a Pentium.

If it is just a fun project, have a go, but you won't see any performance increase.
