M11x with core 2 duo

Hello,
i just recently purchased the alianware m11x with a core 2 duo 1.3ghz and i was wondering is it possible and what would it take to upgrade to the i7 cpu? some of the games i want require 2.4 or 3.0 dual core and im worried that i just wasted money on a new computer that cant even do what i want it to.

    It would require an entirely new motherboard since the Core i's and Core 2's run off different chipsets. You'd probably have to upgrade the cooling as well.

    Anandtech shows the M11x doing pretty well in some tough titles with the Core2: http://www.anandtech.com/show/3620/alienware-m11x-worlds-smallest-gaming-laptop/4
