Model A1311 / Mid 2011 / 2.5 & 2.7 GHz Core i5 or 2.8 GHz Core i7 Processor
it is possible upgrade Core i5-2400S to Core i7-2600?
http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/498/Int... has a comparison for both. Just does not look like a whole lot of improvement and checked the cost of the difference, seems steep for the difference. Good Luck
You can upgrade the 21,5" with the i7 2600S
As long as both are the same mount...
*After some googling*
They are both LGA 1155, so yes, it can be upgraded.
Gabe - did you find anyone that has done this successfully? Just because a chip fits doesn't mean it will run.
Touché. Well theoretically, if its the same bus speed, etc, it will run? I vaguely remember someone upgrading their processor from 1066 MHz to 1333 MHz because the bus was on the processor on a mac once.
The i7 is sandy bridge and the i5 is an older process. I wonder if there might not be firmware problems.
OS 10.6.7 has to be able to support the intel core i 7 2600... google that first
