    So, ifixit.com says that the cpu can be upgraded. Does anyone have a list of possible cpu upgrade? More specifically Core i7's.

    The BTO i7 is the best you can get right now.

    i was about to build a gaming machine
    3.4Ghz Sandy Bridge 2600K
    AMD 6950 2GB GPU

    but decided this was a decent price + monitor all in one and the CPU it in it im not sure if its the 2600 or the 2600K (overclocking) but its identical to what i was interested in and the 6970M gpu should be on pair with the 6950 desktop card

    The 6970m is no where near a 6950 desktop card. Closer to a desktop 6850.

    Correct. It's like comparing a gokart with a real car

    so you read this:

    Replacing the CPU and GPU is possible to do, but you need to remove the logic board from the computer.

    they failed to mention "which" ones.
