Upgrade processor Mac Mini 2011?

Haven't visited in forever, unfortunately! Anyway, simple question.

Can I upgrade the processor in my 2011 Mac Mini? I'd much rather upgrade this and then downgrade it when I'm ready to sell, instead of buying a whole new computer.

So is it possible to upgrade the processor in a 2011 Mac Mini? It's the 2.3 Ghz i5 build.

Thanks!

No, the processor is not user-upgradable.

The processors in 2011 Mac Mini's are soldered in and cannot be upgraded without professional tools and great skill.

The CPUs in the 2006 and 2007 Mini's are upgradable.
