    Core to Core 2 Duo compatibility?

    I just recently purchased a Core Duo based notebook, due to Turion X2 not exactly being all that I had hoped it would. One question that I do have is: with relatively little pain, will I be able to replace the chip on my notebook computer with the Core 2 Duo when it comes out? Is it possible?
