You're looking at an iffy situation there.  If they offered a model of that laptop with the TL-60 or something higher then its a fairly safe bet that your laptop will support it.  If not it would be hard to say wether the board could support it or even boot from it.  You may also want to look into doing a BIOS update on it before you go to upgrade the processor.

That TL-52 is on the 90nm process.  The TL-60 was done on both the 90nm and 65nm process.  You would probably be safe with the 90nm version but after BIOS update (you'll want to check with the manufacturer) it may even support the 65nm chips

It will mean your laptop may operate for a shorter time on battery but it will still work fine.  4 watts is not a huge deal.
