If you need or want a Macintosh laptop with an Intel cpu...you have to buy a MacBook. There's no way to upgrade a Powerbook G4 to make it "Intel".
Also. If the cpu speed in your current Powerbook G4 is too slow to install OS 10.5 Leopard...then you need to purchase a faster model Powerbook G4. Technically there's a program called "Leopard Assist" that's supposed to help with installing 10.5 on Mac's with a cpu slower than 867mhz.
Macintosh laptops are NOT designed to have upgradeable cpu's. Even if you look into the "Windows World" of laptops...very very few of them have upgradeable cpu's either.
p.s. Like I mentioned. The seller in that e-Bay auction is wrong, wrong, wrong!!!
That logic board DOES HAVE a cpu on it (there's almost no way the seller could or would remove a soldered & integrated cpu)...and they are WRONG for including BOTH the words "Powerbook G4" and "Intel" in the same sentence. It just doesn't work that way.
