    I guess you have a 13" MacBook Pro with an i5 CPU?
    Anyway, as the CPU is soldered onto the logic board, you can't replace the CPU.

    Unless your planning on replacing the whole logic board then its a no go. What do you do with your computer? You honestly probably wouldn't notice the difference unless your doing some heavy duty stuff.

    If you didn't know that the CPU was soldered to the logic board, I wouldn't even begin try to do at home upgrades to your machine. Plenty could go wrong. If you need the i7 so badly are you able to return the MBP and swap for an i7 model?

    Best route is to return/exchange if possible. Though the OP may seem a bit of a novice when it comes to repairs (despite replacing the hdd and ram), consider using ifixt.com for future self-repairs.

    cheers.

    Yes thank you.

    Not trying to be condescending by any mean but plenty could go wrong. That is just a huge risk for a piece of hardware that is over a thousand dollars.
