    HP Laptop Processor

    I may be able to get a laptop from a family member with a broken screen for free. It is an hp ze4325us laptop. The specifications says that the processor is an AMD Athlon 2000+ 45w. Is this the same thing as the mobile athlon processors? Could I use this processor with a micro-atx board for my carputer?

    The CPU should be the same. It will have a smaller heatsink and heat transfer tube on it that will need a standard hs/fan. What's wrong with leaving it in the laptop case and hooking up your existing screen to it if everything else works?

    exactly. then you have an onboad battery to take over in voltage drops and can do direct DC to DC convertor.

    I thought about that, but this is going in a show car so I want the install to look good. I already have an opus 150 and everything else needed for the install. All I need is a motherboard. I'm either gonna go with the Biostar motherboard or go with an ASUS board and do the pin mod. If emailed opus to see if I can RMA my power supply to get it to work with the Biostar.
