Which components to turn a IBM x60 into a modern laptop?
The IBM X60, the first and best laptop I have had, has a 32-bits CPU (i686), 1.5 GB of RAM and a bit slow SATA I interface. It is a X60-1707.
I am looking for components so the upgrade will make it support:
- 64-bits processors
- 8 GB of RAM
- SATA III SSDs
Of course, I guess I will have to get through several difficulties :
- physical dimensions and constraints (ports, fans and screws location...)
- interface with existing hardware (LEDs, buttons,keyboard, USB ports...)
But I am only guessing since I have never done this before.
So I am asking the experts: which motherboard can fit in? May I have an Intel i3 ?
Is this a good question?
