Amazingly I could still locate the Service manual online:

 

Manual

 

See p. 87. The BIOS has a VT on and off toggle so you should get hardware virtualization if you install an approriate processor. 

 

The cheapest one you could get would likely be the T7100:

Hard to beat $6 from one of the better eBay laptop parts sellers, shipping included:

Yes I was just specifically giving you the cheapest one. Any of the others will work as well but you need to double check for VT support.
