I've got a 226 mhz speed Core 2 Duo Mini from March 2009 and I'd like to upgrade the processor.

What is the fastest cpu that will work with this machine? And where can I purchase it?

I'm not 100% on this but I think your already there.

Early Intel Macs had plug in processors and could be upgraded to Core2 Duo 1.66GHz - 2.33GHz processors by simply swapping the processor. Later models however are no longer plugged into sockets but are soldered directly to the logic boards so upgrade isn't really an option.

Bummer. I did some additional research and it does appear as though you are correct. Thanks for the input.
