Can I install core 2 duo on this mac mini?
i wonder if i can install a processor that looks like this
Is this a good question?
1.5 Core Solo, 1.66 or 1.83 Core Duo, or 1.83 or 2 GHz Core 2 Duo processor
Sadly, it's not that simple!
You'll need to review the Intel ARK listing for your systems current CPU to see what is compatible.
Even then you may still have a problem in locating the right part for your system. You see, Intel has long since stopped production of this series of chips so what is still on the selves is all there is. Good Luck!
