Angry Dell Support Blows. I hope someone can help

Ok, First off Dell support is the worst, and they wont event answer, what I think should be a simple question.

I am forced, by my college to use a dell laptop, and it came with a 1.3ghz intel celeron mobile proc. I want to upgrade the proc. Simple right? Wrong. I was unable to find out the fastest proc that I can put into my omputer.
So here is the info. I hope someone here knows.

Dell Latitude d505
1.3 Ghz intel celeron M proc
400 mhz system bus
Chipset: Intel 852/855 GM/GME Chipset
60gb Hd
512 mb Ram

I would like to put in like a 2Ghz proc. But I do think 1.7 might be the highest. Would it have to be a 1.7 intel celeron mobile. Or is this mobo compatable with the Pentium Mobile? Whats the socet type? and whats the best/fastest proc I could buy?

Thanks in advance

Download and run CPU-Z and it will tell you.

I THINK they use Socket 478 IIRC.

The chipset needs to support also.
