Gateway Laptop T1620 CPU Upgrade! TL-56 to TL-64


I have had my current laptop for about 4-5 years, and feel that the processor is a little slow right now, so I want to upgrade the CPU. This laptop was bought in 2007 Black Friday best buy. Gateway Tl-1620. AMD Turion 64 x2 1.8ghz.

Current CPU: AMD Turion 64 x2 Tl-56 1.8GHZ Dual Core

Upgrade CPU: AMD Turion 64 x2 Tl-64 2.2 GHZ Dual Core

Their sockets are the same (S1), but they have different sizes. 90nm SOI v.s. 65nm SOI. I have no clue what that means. Would they still fit, and whats the difference.
Laptop Specifications:

Im also looking to upgrade to 4gb of RAM I hear that aside from DDR2 PC-5300, DDR2 PC-6400 also work. Is this true?

Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
