You can also find XP-M chips on ebay for cheap these days. If you do find a way to pop the XP-M chip into a desktop mobo, don't be shocked to see it recognize the chip as a 600MHz chip. On socket A mobos that don't allow for multi adjustments, it will set it to a default of 6x, so the chip isn't fried if it does read 600MHz. Also, don't count the XP completely out if it doesn't work in your laptop. Laptop mobos that were designed to work only with XP-M chips may have lower power requirements, so it may have enough juice to the socket to power the chip.
