Pentium M's have much larger L2 cache...so what would I be missing if this swap can work? Input power considerations? This would be on an El Paso Motherboard , version HV84510A.15A.0013.P07.

Thanks, Brian

A Pentium M will not work in place of a Pentium 4. While it would physically fit, the electrical pin-arrangements of the chips are different, and thus they are incompatible.
