Re: CPU upgrade for Acer 5100 notebook?
Upgrading CPUs in laptops is hit and miss like OEM desktops.

In my expirience with upgrading laptop CPUs is that their mobos will only take CPUs of the same BUS speed. Example is my D610 Latitude; it originally had a 1.6GHz Pentium M, and I replaced it with a 1.83.GHz Pentium M. Granted that's just going from single core to single core, but you get the idea.
But if you decide to try it,I'd recommend that you pull your lappy apart to make sure your CPU isn't embedded (like tthe GPU on a video card), and if it's not embedded, than get one that runs at the same bus and simliar/or same clock speed, and see it works, and sees it as a Dual core CPU.
If it doesn't work, resell it on eBay.
As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.
