HP Notebook Processor Upgrade Finding

While looking for the definition of ‘mishandling’ from hp website, i found the Maintenance and service guide document for my notebook.

My notebook being a tiny-winy celeron m 1.5GHz processor is a sucker for battery juice. It do not have speed-step technology not like its big brothers, such as pentium m, core duo and core 2 duo.

From the service guide, I found that the processor is upgradeable with the following processors

Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 373053-001
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 373052-001
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 367771-001
Intel Pentium M 715 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 383431-001
Intel Pentium M 715A (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 380690-001
Intel Celeron M 370 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 383876-001
Intel Celeron M 360 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 380033-001
Intel Celeron M 350 (1.3-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
380032-001
Intel Celeron M 320 (1.3-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 394734-001

Feeling itchy handed, I thought why dont I upgrade to a Pentium M processor, if the price is reasonable.

Guess what I found on HP Partsurfer site?

Pentium M 715 for USD 600
725 for USD 700
745 for USD 1150|?!?!

Hello, crazy ar? for USD  1150 I can buy a nice entry level core 2 duo notebook already..better go find 1 in pasar malam (night market)
