Is there any motherboard with a socket S1 out there ?
I can't find any ?

Will there be any available, or is that going to be limited to laptop ?

If so, when should we expect to see them on the market ?

If you're asking about a Desktop, i.e. ATX or µATX motherboard then no, there are no Socket S1 desktop boards that I know of.

Since Low-power parts with very similar specifications compared to mobile Socket S1 parts are available for the regular Desktop Socket AM2, there is no real reason to use a mobile part in a desktop motherboard anymore.
For example, the Socket AM2 Athlon 64 X2 3800+ EE SFF (Energy Efficient Small Form Factor) has a 35W TDP and is clocked at 2.0GHz with 512KB L2-cache per core which makes it pretty much identical to a Turion 64 X2 TL-60 (specification-wise).

Many people liked to use some of the older, 754-pin mobile parts in desktop boards to achieve a significantly reduced power-consumption/heat generation which (although it was feasible and did work just fine in many cases) resulted often in various compatibility issues, e.g. Heatsink installation on lidless parts, BIOS-issues, etc.
The Socket AM2 EE and especially EE SFF parts are designed for use in a silent or small form factor environment such as HTPCs where noise, heat-generation and power-consumption are critical.
Since they are basically just normal desktop parts which have been certified/validated to run stably at a significantly lower core voltage reducing heat generation and power-consumption, there are no more compatibility issues (i.e. you can use any Socket AM2 motherboard and heatsink you like).

Consequently, there is no need at all for Desktop-style Socket S1 motherboards which is why I wouldn't expect any motherboard manufacturer to make such a board.

It seems impossible to buy this cpu, do you have any suggestion where to find it (or a similar CPU with 35W TDP for desktop)?
Thanks

AMD Athlon X2 3800+ EE (maybe there was even more in it), at least there is an AM2 35W X2 3800+.

Yep... I agree with djohn, it is impossible to buy the Athlon 35 Watt, I'm starting to doubt that it exist.

My Dell 1501 has the chip and s1 motherboard, so it likes like they are both available for computer manufactures only!

I have been looking for a info on what is the fastest chip I can drop in in 6 months time.

I did not get a choice of CPU or the whole system, dell gave me this laptop because my old laptop kept overheating. Who says Dell are bad to deal with?

Bump.

I've ended up with two Turion 64 X2 processors so I've been searching for a motherboard with two S1 sockets, but haven't had any luck. I'm not surprised, as motherboards with just ONE S1 socket are still in short supply. Nevertheless, I thought I'd ask here just in case someone does actually know of a motherboard with two S1 sockets.

Or, does anyone know of an S1 motherboard that's under $150 US? Under $100 would be even better, but something tells me that's not going to happen -- doubtful about $150 even...

These darn processors are sitting around doing nothing... I'm itching to use them, but I'm not exactly made of money.
