That's not strictly true. But generally speaking putting a destktop socket A cpu in a laptop is not a good idea.
Be careful when shopping for Socket A mobiles at Online auctions and stores. If the OPN reads AXMHxxxxG, Stay away.

That is the micro socket

But conversely a normal 462 pin socket A mobile xp-m should work in most desktops (sometimes with a bit of bios tweeaking). Further info here: http://fab51.com/cpu/guide/opn-xp-e.html
