Default AMD mobile chips

I have never overclocked a cpu before but i am going to be doing it on this next chip. I noticed that there are mobile amd's and regular amd's...whats the difference. I was reading up and it seems that only overclockers are buying the mobile amd. This is gonna sound dumb but are all retail chips overclockable? I keep reading about locked and unlocked and im a little confused Anyway maybe a little OC 101 is in order. I thought I had my mind made up on a chip, but now im thinking a XP2600 w/ a nice fan could be overclocked to tun faster then the 2800 I was looking at without a hitch. I would appreciate any input.

Cappy's that's incorrect.....

The mobile processors are processors designed for notebooks... n' not for desktops ..
These processors are better off thermally etc.. N' thier architecure is slightly different .. Visit AMD's website for details on the architecture

The mobile's were designed for laptops. They have lower vcores so they produce less heat. Because of this overclockers love them. they can crank up the vcore and still produce less heat than a desktop processor. They all around have better oc's too. I've seen people take the mobile's up to 2.6 from I think a 1.8. that's a heck of an oc compared to a 2500 that goes from 1.8 to 3.2. I think the only thing spec-wise that differs is the vcore and the Cache. I'm not sure on the second though. take a look at amd's website or newegg or something to find out for sure.
