Well, I can guess, but I'm not sure the small increase in CPU speed is
worth the risk of wedging the X1.
Mine is clocked at 400, so I think it is a different motherboard/CPU
config than your board.

I don't think the CD drive is special/non-standard in the T105 - do
you have a dead drive in the one you are going to get? You could
install from a 5 1/4" optical drive hanging outside the case (not
mounted) I bet
