Firstly, comparing a U60 and a U10 is a no-contest comparison. The U60
is clearly a superior system.
Replacing processors on a U60 is *extremely* simple. Pop the side panel
off, pull out the old processor, snap the new ones in, set the jumpers,
turn on the computer, enjoy. You may consider doing a "boot -r", but I
don't recall that it's necessary.
