For all Desktop-CPU laptop owners/how I made a "mobile" PIII out of a Desktop PIII

I didn't believe it first:
I can run my Pentium 733 MHz in my Laptop (standard 1.65 Volts) at a Voltage of 1.35. And with a clock of 550 MHz it runs even with 1.3 Volt.
That saves about 40 % of power for the same CPU Power.

For all Desktop-PIII Laptop owners out there, try it out, it saves a lot of accu power.
I switched the Voltage simply by removing 2 or 3 of the VID pins, voilà.
