Probably every laptop manufacturer that was in business 6-10 years ago.

You looking for a laptop or for a mobil Athlon processor?

Dell probably didn't use a board with that socket because they hadn't gotten into using any AMD processors at that time. At least that is my recollection.

Pretty much all the rest of the player though.

Why do you want to know this?

You mentioned the sempron 3300. I think the mobile sempron 3300 was socket 754:

So you might want to verify exactly what you have.

i have a collection of athlon 3200 462 CPU's and i also have a new sempron 3300 socket 462 both have a 400 fsb and i am looking at doing a few experiments with the smaller main-boards from the laptops but i have no idea what laptop to look for and everywhere i look i find nothing but dead ends and sales traps and bullsh#t spams! i would have thought somebody would know off the top of their heads but it seems to be a bit of a curly one!

All you need to do is google for reviews on laptops equipped with Athlons or durons. Not sure what was used but those are the chips that fit that socket.

I still don't understand what you are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to identify what laptop a certain board originally came in?

And why a laptop board to test with? A desktop board would, for example, give the ability to change vCore and FSB settings.

What experiments are you wanting to do?

Running an Athlon XP-M in a desktop system was THE hot ticket back in the socket A heydays. You just had to be sure that the motherboard supported ALL the necessary BIOS options.

i am looking at the possibility of running a second mainboard and cpu that is autonomous and invisible to the main system but will behave like a mirror image of the system it protects! This will overlook and protect the system with a totally dedicated cpu ram and drive that cant be hacked or infected it will detect any changes that will breach privacy and offer an easy way to repair any damage quickly! In theory that is! This is a security messure concept only but may have other potentials i have not thought of! This socket type cpu has potentials that were poorly exploited due to software that was not as well developed as the cpu's at the time but now with this os windows 7 new options are now available and WOW!!!!!!
