Upgrade Toshiba Satellite A15 S127 CPU

Hey guys, I'm new here and all, but I wanted to ask if I could upgrade my Toshiba Satellite A15 s127'S CPU (a pretty crappy 2 ghz celeron) to a brand smacking new Dual pentium 1.86 ghz. They both use the same socket (478) and share the same FSB speed (533 mhz). I would really appreciate the help since I want to be 100 percent sure when I do the upgrade.

PS- The CPU is socket based (WOOHOOOOOOOOOOO)
