More important is the question of what processors can your motherboard handle. Certain motherboards accept certain sockets and speeds of processor, so you can choose from that to decide what you want to upgrade it with.

See page 8 of this manual. Your compuer has a Socket 370 processor, an Intel Pentium II. You can upgrade it with another one of those. Here's the manual listing the specs of the processor the motherboard can take:

Yikes, a Pentium II?? Unfortunately it will definately be more economical to just replace the whole motherboard, or the whole computer! This motherboard will only support a range of P2 processors, an upgrade will cost several hundred dollars, close to the price of a brand new computer with a P4 in it.

No, u can't. ur motherboard is designed for pentium III processors with FSB -133 MHz, Socket-370 type. Pentium 4 processors have 400 MHz FSB, 423 Socket at least. But yes for memory, u can upgrade it to 512 MB.

Intel Pentium II Processor Upgrade


No, this highest the P-II went to was either 400 or 450 Mhz. Upgrading a thinkpad CPU may be difficult. Considering prices on used laptops now, I wouldn't think it would be worthwhile, either.

Need faster PIII mobile processor for CPx 650 laptop = X ghz proc


I'm not sure about the CPU upgrade--these generally are hard to determine and this is complicated by the fact that Pentium III processors are no longer made, I would say that you could go on e-Bay and find one there (should be cheap) and try it.
An easier way to get a little more speed is to bring the memory up to the maximum the laptop will hold. (In your case 512 MB). That and set the paging file to allow the system to determine the size needed (Unless your system has Linux installed). Any further upgrades on an older system like yours are usually just a waste of money.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
