R61i CPU Upgrade


I have R61i.  8932-A59 (CTO I think). It has T2370 Dual core processor 1.73 GHz, 533 FSB, 1 MB cache (Socket P I believe). Chipset GM965 Express (an intel software tells me so). Laptop was too slow so I upgraded RAM to 3GB but not much improvement. So I am thinking to upgrade CPU. Apparently T8100(C2D 2.1), and T8300(C2D 2.4) look good choice. Googling around tells me they are compatible but I have never done such thing.

1. Is CPU upgrade way to go?

2. Is it possible or I have to go some other way?

3. Is it something that I can perform myself?

4. What results should I expect after its done?


Experts/ someone who has done this please help. Suggestions are Welcom
