X60 CPU upgrade

Hi. I'm looking to upgrade the CPU which core duo T2400 with a core 2 duo T5600 on the intel mobile 945GM chipset

I can't seem to find out from the Internet whether the CPU is easy to change. I think I read somewhere that it is soldered on to the board. It says it's a socket on the intel website.

Has anybody done this or know any info about it please share :smileyhappy:
I haven't taken it all apart to check because it's not worth it if it is soldered as that sounds hard

Many thanks

Peter

Waste of money, waste of time. You wouldn't even notice a difference.

Really? Not even with a T7600?
Is the CPU soldered or socketed also?

It's soldered on there.
