umm well i dont think you can put a Mobile CPU into a desktop board but he might have ment getting a mobile motherboard aswell and then putting it into a desktop but it would be kinda pointless

He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.

i am sure it is posible but you would need a special motherboard that supports the mobile chip , i seem to remember an adaptor for socket 478 so you could put pentium M in there but i may be mistaken .
also there realy would be no benifit unless it is for a small form factor media center machine type thing
