    I know the CoreDuo processors in the white iMacs are replaceable with a C2D processor, effectively upgrading the machine.

    I was wondering if this is the same with the CoreDuo 15" MBP, as I have one of these as well.

    I would be interested to know if this is the case, and if anyone has done the swap.

    TIA,

    Not possible, as the CPU is soldered onto the logic board.

    It's very possible, just impractical.

    You need access to a BGA Rework Station and the knowledge of how to use one, or somebody that does.

    Socketed would be the only way. I don't have access to a soldering station...

    Thanks,
