This may sound like a strange request, but bear with me. Are there any CPU upgrades I can perform on an Asus UL50-VT:

It sounds strange since the laptop isn't even four months old, but it has all the necessary features I need minus processing power. I knew that it was a low voltage processor going in, but I figured if I can pull 12 hours of battery life on a low voltage CPU, it couldn't be much worse adding a higher clock, higher performance CPU.

Money isn't much of an issue at this point, I was just wondering if there was any conceivable way of adjusting the processor in this notebook.

My only concern is that because it is a low voltage processor, you may be limited in putting in another chip with a higher TDP, as the power supply and MOBO may not be be able to handle it. Plus, unless you know what you are doing with laptops, it can be a major PITA to take them apart, especially a new one where you are voiding the warranty.
