Can you pair any mobile CPU with a mobile chipset as long as it's supported by the chipset? Or is BIOS support needed as well?

Any user experience comments, suggestions, etc?

Its usually BIOS locked by most manufactures. Unless there is another model in the same laptop series that uses a higher end CPU, your chances of successfully upgrading the CPU are pretty slim.
