cpu upgrade on a cheap thinkpad r61e

2014-09-13, 9:46 AM

hoping just for quick yes or no really purchased a nice cheap thinkpad r61e to play about with(my first thinkpad in a long time), and was hoping to do my first cpu upgrade, am i right in thinking (from my reshearch) that  an Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 2GHz SLA45 2.00 4M 800 Processor CPU would be a compaitble cpu ?  if not what would you suggest going the second hand route looking to keep this nice and cheap.

To be honest the upgrading is more about practice then anything else as i have never done a cpu upgrade so thought i should learn. 
thanks in advance 

Solved! See the solution
