you will have a lot of trouble finding any socket 423 hardware as it is quite rare. not only was it not sold in great volume but it only lasted about 5 months from memory before being replaced by s478. besides, by this point in time the s479 mobile socket using early Pentium M's/Pentium 3's had already been established. i don't think there would have been many, if any s423 laptops.

that chip is crap anyways, makes no sense to be lookin for a laptop just for the sake of using that chip... unless you pay under $100 then i guess that would justify the purchase....

but that is probably a Celeron M, based on the Pentium M Dothan or Yonah Core Solo. there is a BIG difference. if you can handle a massively long read you could check out the guide at the top of the building, buying, upgrading for high performance pcs section. that might give you an idea of the difference. i'll put it this way. a Pentium 3 1.3GHz is probable equal to or better than that P4.
