    Hey fellas

    What would the end result be if the 13' MBP was injected with the ULV processors from the recently refreshed MBA line. Would you hypothetically see a substantial increase in battery life? And would there then be room for a dedicated GPU? From what I understand, there would be no noticeable speed difference? Just curious thats all, the idea of a MBP with 13-15 hrs of battery life sounds very intriguing!

    If you have a soldering table you might be able to swap. However you are going to be a guinea pig since we dont know if the EFI support that processor, indeed the sockets are the same, but support is another story

    there wont be any room for a dedicated gpu in that setup. for several reasons
