thinkpad edge 15 030255u..Processor upgrade

i upgraded my processor from a AMD athlon II p360 to a AMD phenom II p650. Was this the right thing to do or is it going to fry my motherboard they both use 25w? is my motherboard compatible with the p650? is it compatible with my BIOS? i did some research at cpu-word.com and compared specs on both cpu's. they  are similar other then the fact that the p650 has better numbers. here ar the stats http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20P650%20-%20HMP650SGR23GM.ht... and http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Athlon%20II%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20P360%20-%20AMP360SGR22GM.ht...  Please give me ur personal opinion if it ws the right thing to do :s thanks
