    As the title says, what's the most powerful processor I can fit into a 13 INCH MBP?

    Thanks,

    Ainsley.

    The one that comes with it. Processors are not user-replaceable.

    If you already have a MBP you cannot change the processor in the first place. If you are buying new, the 13" model maxes out with a 2.7 GHz dual core i7.

    As said, the one it comes with. The CPU is soldered to the motherboard.

    Thanks for your quick replies. I swear someone told me I could upgrade if I take it into Apple and go for the i7.. Oh well.
