Unfortunately the processor is not a plug-and-play part, and upgrading to 3GHZ would require a logic board swap. Considering you have basically a new machine that is in warranty, this is not in any way practical or worth the risk and cost involved. If you absolutely need a 3GHZ processor, I'd suggest selling this machine and buying a new one.

I agree with rdklinc, although i did find a cheap 3.06 logic baord and parts on ebay that i use to swap out my 2.53 mbp with. But Then I'm also using the old 2.53 logic board as replacement for another broken MBP i bought on ebay to replace with. So for me its a win win situation. I upgrade my MBP and I build/repair a another one.
