Here is a link to the service manual for your laptop.

On p.34 of the manual it lists the CPUs that can be installed.

The highest specification CPU listed - Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7600 (2.33 GHz), 4-MB L2 cache. It supports Intel 64 feature, that allows it to run 64-bit operating systems.

However due to this note* in the memory specification area (p.35) the T60 is limited to 3GB RAM (by the chipset- which is not upgradeable). So while you can run a 64 bit CPU, you'll probably not gain anything due to the RAM limitation, (if you run 64-bit) unless you are just after a CPU speed advantage (if you run 32-bit), especially if you couple it with an SSD.

*Note: Due to the limitation of the current 32-bit PC architecture, actual usable memory size is limited to 3 GB even though the physical installable memory size is 4 GB in ThinkPad T60 and T60p computers.

Hopefully this is of some help

The reason why I want to go for the 64 bit processor is that Chrome no longer supports 32 bit processors and I just love Chrome on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS...
