Default Stealing from the Rich, to give to the Poor.

OK guys, I'm new here.

But I've got a question.

My gf has an old Dell XPS m140, with a Intel Celeron running at 2.00GHz, and I have am currently using an HP Brick (otherwise known as a dv6000)...now I have all the problems most dv6000 users have. No wireless, running extremly hot.

But what I was wondering was...do you think I could replace my old AMD motherboard and processor (which is only running at 1.6GHz) with the motherboard and cpu from my gf's old dell?

What do you think?

I recently brought her a new emachine laptop from a liquidation sale that's working like a charm, that I want to last her until she needs to buy a Macbook for Arts college.

My dv6000 has to last me until financial aid time in August when I can buy my dream Lenovo with a Intel i5...mmmmm.

Thanks for any advice.
Sorry for the long post

I dont think this is physically possible if the laptops have two different motherboards...

would need to be prety much an identical motherboard. even if by some weird conincidence the two were compatible, i doubt it would actually fit inside the laptop.

why not just nick the dell? ^_^
