I ordered the 13" MacBook Pro, with the i5 intel processor. I was just wondering, when I receive it - is there any possible way to upgrade the processor.. such as, me buying the i7 and having it installed?

thank you

No. What you purchased is what you have. Only memory and the hard drive may be upgraded.

Same answer as your other post and administrators frown on multiple postings.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

I meant two completely different questions. The first was in reference to solely upgrading the processer.

The second question was in reference to making it faster, instead of the processor. Graphic/Video Cards, RAM Upgrading, Hard Drive updating...etc

I have a macbook pro 13" 2.4GHz Core2Duo with 4GB RAM.
In order to make it faster, I'm upgrading to 8GB of RAM and because I need a 500GB Hard drive But can't afford a solid state drive so I'm upgrading to a seagate 500GB 7200rpm. So, I'd suggest a RAM upgrade and upgrade hard drive to 7200rpm or even better an SSD.
There's some really good hard drive changing kits which come with a hard drive case to make your previous hard drive an external hard drive for backups as well as good deals on memory.
Performance Upgrades; FireWire USB SATA Storage; Memory, more at OWC
