Along the same line ......

Does anyone know if the mobile A64 will work in desktop? I'm not sure if the BIOS will have any negative impact; despite the fact that I assume the Heatsink mounting does not present problems.

I'm not sure the pinlayout will be 100% correct, it would be smart for AMD to change some pins around or make the dimensions a wee bit different


I'm looking for a cheap XP2200+ Sempron for a review btw, know a shop that has them?
