Hello, I just wanted to thank you for writting the 17th edition of upgrading
and repairing pc's. It has been very good reading.
Thanks for the comments! You may be interested in some of my other books and
DVDs (such as Upgrading and Repairing Laptops 2nd edition) as well:
>Also, I just wandered if it is possible to overclock a point 1600 tablet
You can't overclock the existing processor, but you might be able to replace
it with a faster model of the same type. That system uses the ULV (ultra-low
voltage) version of the Core Solo processor, which is currently available in
three speeds: 1.06GHz, 1.2GHz, and 1.33GHz. If yours was 1.06GHz or 1.2GHz,
you might be able to install a 1.33GHz ULV Core Solo, or possibly even a
1.2GHz ULV Core Duo instead. The gain in speed would be nearly 11% if going
from 1.2 to 1.33GHz, and nearly 26% if going from 1.06 to 1.33GHz. If the
Core Duo would work, even further gains would be noticed as that is a
dual-core processor. Unfortunately the 1.33GHz Core Solo ULV costs nearly
$300, but you should be able to sell your existing processor to recoup some
or most of the cost.
>...and if you could run a pocket pc os on it? Thanks, Todd
Despite the name, Pocket PCs are not actually PCs, instead they are handheld
PDAs. As such they don't use PC processors (meaning those compatible with
Intel x86), so they can't run standard PC OS or software. Scott.
