I have a mbp, 2009 model, with a 3.06 GHz Intel core 2 duo processor and I was interested in upgrading to the I7 processor chip that comes in the new models. I know that it requires solder work but that wont be a problem. Does anyone know if the I7 processor is compatible with the current mobo that I have installed. I believe this is the motherboard that is installed MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid 2009) 2.66 GHz Logic Board (661-5212) - iFixit
