    No, the chipsets are fundamentally different.

    The aforementioned information is actually incorrect. But, you still can't do it.

    the cpus are soldered in, so probably not.

    If you could get the CD out without damaging anything (iI think this is impossible) then you could.

    Don't believe so. MBs and MBPs are soldered in place.

    Not true. In minis, you can drop a C2D in place of the stock CD or CS. Both Core Duo and Core 2 Duo use Socket M in the Napa platform.

    No they're not; the only real difference is the processor itself. The problem is that the CPUs on Apple laptops are soldered in place.

    Edit: Damn you and your fast fingers, flopticalcube. :D

    Soldered Processor removal is EXTREMELY difficult, and re-soldering on a new chip wold be near-impossible for the average computer enthusiast.

    Socket CPUs are your friend, Apple. Sockets are your friend. :)

    Even RSI can't slow me down. Forum spy is your friend.
