I doubt it. For one laptops cannot usually be upgraded except in RAM, then the ThinkPad T20 is a very old model and technology has progressed since then, which means that even if your CPU could be replaced by a newer one you would probably have to change the motherboard too (since it's probably as old as the CPU), etc...

Of course you could try and find a better CPU compatible with your motherboard (there's probably a 1GHz upgrade out there for this particular model), but they are ancient components and therefore potentially expensive...

Probably better just to buy a new laptop altogether to be honest.
