    No. According to the ThinkWiki specifications page (below), the
    fastest upgrade CPU would be the T7700. From the Intel specs
    (below), Q9100 uses a different socket and a faster front side
    bus.

    The T7700 looks like the best bet here - full socket
    compatibility and a 33% speed increase. A quick look on EBay
    shows several available for reasonable prices.

    Actually,

    The R61 shipped with the T7700 as fastest configuration,
    but it can handle T7800 (which the R61p shipped with).
