    Last year i upgraded the previous mac mini cpu from a 1.83 go a 2.4.

    I know sport the new 2GHZ Mac Mini Penryn based machine.

    So far I have been able to source:

    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile P8600, Dual Core Penryn, Sok 478 P, 2.40 GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 45nm, 25W,

    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile P8400, Dual Core Penryn, Sok 478 P, 2.26 GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 45nm, 25W,

    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile T9400, Sok 478 P, 2.53 GHz, 1066MHz FSB, Penryn Core, 6MB Cache,

    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile P9500, Socket 478 P, 2.53 GHz, 8MB Cache,

    Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile T9600, Sok 478P, 2.80 GHz, 1066MHz FSB,


    Does anyone know which are compatible or what the existing chip is?They are all same socket, so im guessing all compatible.

    Next time try a little searching on this site or Google on the web first....this has been discussed several times...the current Mini CPU is soldered in and can't be changed out (at least not easily)

    OK...sorry... I think if someone did it successfully they'd be all over the forums bragging about it (with pictures) - you wouldn't have to ask.

    It can be done, but not without special (very expensive) equipment.
