Hi guys, I want to upgrade my CPU but I didn't decide one of them. Do you have any suggestion. I don't know which CPU will work on my main-board regularly.

Are you for real?

I'd go for a Core i7 965. Once you're done please post a Howto for other netbook users!

Simply put, upgrading is going to be a HUGE hassle.  The Atom's are soldered on to the mainboards, unlike normal PCs.  This means you have to have some soldering skills to even swap it out.  Next, you can not just buy Atom processors, as they are not sold outright.  You would have to find a mainboard with the processor you want, buy the board, then unsolder the processor.  Also, you will need to look at compatibility, and possible battery life issues.
