I just got one of these:' ">
and was wondering whether it would be possible to upgrade it to an Athelon 64. I'd like to have the extra power, but would I also need more than just the basics that come with the laptop to use it to its potential?

Depends on the socket of the cpu... check which sockets fit the mobile 64s as well, idk exactly what they are. Also, even if you were to upgrade, it would be very difficult to find a heatsink/fan for a 64 that would fit in ur case. This b/c its highly likely that the sempron's cooling will not be adequite.
