Default ppga478 and pga478

I have a dell inspiron 1545 laptop with a pentuim T3400. I want to upgrade the processor to a intel P8800 the pentuim processor specs from the web site say T3400 fits a pga478 socket and the P8800 fits a ppga478 socket. When I contacted Dell I asked them what processor upgrades were available for my computer they said the T4300 and the T6600 would fit in my computer the intel specs say these processors require a ppga478 socket and my current processor specs says it requires a pga478 socket. My question is this. Will a intel P8800 work in my computer?
The specs on this processor say it is compatable with my chipset it has a lower TDP rating than the one I currently have and the voltages are in compatable ranges. The only difference is T3400 is pga478 and P8800 is ppga478. Please Help!

Nope. The one you have in the system is the highest you can go.
