That would be impossible. The laptop units use Socket S1g3 or S1g4 while the desktop ones use Socket AM3 so the Phenom II X6 1100T wouldn't even fit in the laptop socket.
You can change laptop CPUs with a suitable replacement laptop CPU without much trouble once you get the computer opened up. Many corporate laptops like my Dell have a big access panel on the bottom of the machine that you unscrew with a common #1 Phillips head screwdriver. I canget at its CPU in about 30 seconds. Consumer laptops can be a little more difficult with snap-fit parts and in the case of Crapples, "no user serviceable parts inside" and goofy three-lobed screws to prevent the user from trying. Once you get the bottom off, the entire guts of most laptops are there for easy pickings. Removing the heatsink assembly generally will use a #0 or #1 Phillips head screwdriver which are commonly available and not all that small. The CPU is a standard pin grid array unit like a desktop Phenom II except there is a normal-sized slotted screw that you have to turn to release the CPU rather than a lever to flip.
