the best you will be able to get is the Core 2 Duo Processor P8800 2.6ghz

First of all, thank you about your answer, but:

I know that answer is already answered by ASUS support centar.
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor P8800/P8700/P7450/T6670/T6570/T5900 : 2.66 GHz - 2.1 GHz

I need to know can i change it with Core 2 Duo T9900 or Core 2 Duo 9600? Or something better?
My question is: Which is THE BEST processor for my notebook?

when it comes to changing processor in a laptop there is not much of a choice..i suggest you stick to the p8800 for compatibility reasons. the p8800 is the top model by the way

you will need to know how to open your laptop and change the processor, as well as have a good thermal paste. i suggest you leave the changing part to a technician or better still to asus service centre.
