    Hold on a second, did you mean Lenovo ThinkPad T420/T520, not the good old IBM ThinkPad T20?
    Anyway, the i5-2500 is a desktop CPU which doesn't even fit in your ThinkPad.

    You should look for these instead:
    • i7-2630QM
    • i7-2670QM
    • i7-2720QM
    • i7-2760QM
    • i7-2820QM
    • i7-2860QM
    The first three are relatively cheap in eBay.
