The manual of my cq62-219wm laptop at 4-47 ~p.90 suggests firstly the i7 620m intel processor as a replacement for the old Celeron 900. Many processor replacement suggestions in the same list have "for model 1.0/1.1/1.2 only" specification, however the aforementioned one does not have this specification, so I'm thinking it works with all models. Also there are two numbers listed for lithography: 32nm for lithography and then 45nm for graphics and IMC lithography. My motherboard is hp model 1484, but cannot seem to find any info on what lithography goes with it(I know the intel t9500 penryn is 45nm). I know the smarter choice would be the t9500, but this is three years after I bought it, so I would like to keep up... Thanks!

With our mobile processor it can be hard to understand the what works and what doesnt work together but in this case Iwould have to say no. The Intel® Core™ i7-640M won't work as a replacement for the Intel Celeron® 900 due to the fact with the Intel Core i7-640m we removed to the memory controller from the board and put it on the processor. This changed the bus type from FSB to DMI. This is a board level change that must happen in order to support the processor. http://ark.intel.com/compare/49666,41498

Although its clear the I7 can not replace the Celeron for probably more reasons than what you stated.
I find it VERY interesting that the memory controller move on die would result in a change in name to DMI. Makes sense though.

Not sure if it makes a difference, but I was looking at the i7-620m, not 640m.
I find it a little worrying that it is listed as a replacement, to 'bling out' the list...
So, in conclusion would you say that the best choice would be the t9500? If not what else should I consider?
Thank you for your reply!

That depends, what are you trying to do with this laptop? If you want to game on it, simply getting a better CPU won't help you.

@Novuake - Yeah, I'm a little past the gaming stage :) , no just trying to spend around $100 for an upgrade. Already upgraded to 4Gb RAM, so next step will be a better CPU. And no, I don't want to consider getting a new laptop. As I said, the amount is fixed. I just need to know if there are any better alternatives to the t9500 that fit my mobo.

Not as far as I know. The t9500 will be a nice upgrade though. Not much, but enough to make it worth it.
