I have an Intel Xeon w3670 and an planning on upgrading it, but I don't want to just throw away the 6 core processor. I was thinking of putting the Xeon in a Dell laptop but I don't know if it will fit. Thanks.
 


Your w3670 is quite popular on ebay so just put it on there for the prices that others sold for.
 
First off laptop and desktop /servers usually have different sockets and I am 99% sure you won't find any compatible laptop with proper socket
second, xeon are server CPU with draws a more power than laptop cpu. Without proper cooling your laptop will be cooking and die.
All and all it is a bad idea and probably impossible.
