Processor upgrades to MacBook like Mini?

With the Yonah falling fast in price (dualcore 2.0), the rumors are swirling for the higher dualcores to follow suit up to the launch of the 2.7. Has anyone read anywhere about the ability to upgrade the procs in the laptop line? Is it as easy as the InteliMini? Are they all plug and play? If that's the case it definitely makes the laptops look very attractive for the chance to continue to upgrade them as better processors come out.

IIRC, the MacBook Pro is NOT CPU upgradable, and I would guess the MacBook would be the same.

Yep. CPU is soldered into the MBP logic board. My guess is same story with the MB too.

I was hoping that since the G4 Minis and iBooks used to share essentially the same mobo that it would carry over to this new generation. Oh well. Farbeit from Apple to continue something easily hackable like that smiling smiley
