    Ok here's the deal, I want a 13" Macbook Pro for school, because of the size, however I really wished it had at least a core i3, i5, or i7 processor in the MacBook pro. So I was wondering, know no much about upgrades, can you actually upgrade the processor in a MacBook pro? :apple:
    :confused:

    You aren’t missing much with a C2D in the 13” MBP.

    I recommend you read through some of the responses on this thread.

    No, as the CPU is soldered onto the logic board (mother board) and the chipset of the i3/5/7 differs from the one used for the C2Ds (that's why the 15" and 17" MBP have a crappy Intel IGP.
