Probably not. It's not as simple as whether or not the chips would physically fit. The BIOS on one laptop may not recognize the CPU microcode from another computer, and then the cooling system for a particular laptop was calibrated specifically for the CPU that came with it. Putting in a different CPU could lead to issues with too much heat building up and damaging the other internal components.
