there are no desktop mobos that're the same socket....
You can get an adapter to make it work on socket 478 though.

i think youll need either a socket 479 board or a socket 478 board and a 478-->socket 479 converter.

not sure about your laptop it might be a 479 so the centrino might fut right in but if you want a destop i have found a list of mobos that support the adapter
P4P800 SE BIOS 1008
P4P800-VM BIOS 1016
P4P800-E Deluxe BIOS 1007
P4C800-E Deluxe BIOS 1021
P4GD1 BIOS 1005
P4GPL-X BIOS 0205

I would recommend against the 800-VM though unless you don't plan to overclock it at all. I have one in one of my folding systems using Clockgen.
