Just before the Core 2 Duos came out, I bought a 17 inch Duo Core iMac.

I have been wondering if it is possible or worth (cost vs. performance) it to take the iMac to an Apple dealer to have them replace the Duo Core with a Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz.

I'd appreciate your input.

It is possible to upgrade to a Core 2 Duo from a Core Duo CPU, although these instructions indicate that the process is "not for the faint of heart".

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You may be better of selling the computer on eBay, and rebuying a new one. Macs tend to hold their resale pretty well.
