T22 is already top of the line in that series of T20/T21/T22.
The (next up) T23 motherboard will not fit, but if you could buy a complete T23 base with motherboard, you could take the LCD-lid, HD and CD/DVD drive from the T22 and transplant them. RAM from T22 won't fit in T23.
That said, T23 is still only max. 1GB RAM and a slow 1.13 or 1.2GHz CPU.
You'd be wasting money trying to revive that oldie, unless you are a nostalgic person.
If you want to stay small, go for an X60/X60s/X61/X61s (non-tablet).
For the same size as T22 (14.1"), look into the T4x/R5x series, or better, look into T60/T61 series.
