So a coworker of mine broke her macbook, and thought it was too much to fix it, so she said I could have whatever I could salvage out of it. This was great news to me, as I wanted to upgrade the cpu in my Vostro, and the macbook had a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo in it. So I spend about 30 minutes opening this thing up to get to the cpu (Macs are a pain when it comes to taking them apart) only to find out that Apple soldered the cpu to the board. WHO DOES THAT? That is completely ridiculous. So, needless to say, I'm a little upset, but it was a learning experience that I thought I would share with my fellow OCN'ers.
