The Sony pen tablet computers models PCV-LX 900, 910, 920 featured a 1 GHz Pentium III processor and 512MB maximum RAM. They can be upgraded with PowerLeap processors to 1.4 GHz, but then they run a much noisier fan.

In my opinion, these models support the best pen tablet display available, especially because the stand provides the most ergonomic adjustability of any similar monitor.
On Sony's Japanese website, I found more advanced models of this great computer. In particular, they made a model PCV-LX96G which had:
Windows XP Home, a Pentium 4 1.80 GHz, 1 GB Max RAM, 80GB Hard Drive, a DVD-RW drive, and a Giga Pocket video I/O card.

There are really good pictures available here:

All the websites (at least in Google) that refer to this model are in Japanese. Does anyone know where this model could be obtained, and whether English documentation might be available? The finder's fee will be provided.

Can you be more specific as to the exact model of PowerLeap that will work on the LX900?
I have blown over 100 bucks on incorrect models.

I know PLeap is gone now,...but if I at least knew the exact model to search for online,...I could have a fighting chance.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I have purchased other 1.4 ghz processors that fit perfectly but still did not work or wasn't recognized when trying to boot up.

thanks

I installed a PowerLeap PL-Neo/T 1.4 GHz / 133 MHz FSB Intel "Tualatin" Pentium-III/S 512K L2 Cache for $198 on my LX-910 running Windows XP Pro with 2GB of RAM.
The only problems I have had over all these years are that the BIOS does not recognize the processor ID at boot, the CPU runs hotter at about 51°, and unexplained crashes every two or three weeks (it is my work machine and I leave it on all the time) which may be due to bad memory, but I haven't ruled out the processor.
