    Hi guys,

    Curious about this, someone mentioned that the Core 2 Duos werent soldered, and were upgradeable to other C2D CPU's.

    How about the i3? Anyone know about this?

    Thanks :)

    Curious to know, as the i3 models use socket 1156 which can fit the i5's too.

    So whats stopping people upgrading like this?
