    Can I do This, if so where?

    I have a 2007 Mac Pro Quad 2.66 GHZ Intel Xeon processor. It is no longer supporting some of my applications like itunes and garageband. I went to the Apple store and was told that they can not install/update a new processor, but a 3rd party can. Does anyone know where I can find a 3rd party apple repair shop? Thanks!

    I would think twice about getting your venerable old machine upgraded, as the results may not what you are looking for. According to this forum thread (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4097919?tstart=0), the problem is not with the hardware but the firmware. Firmware is a set of instructions hard coded into ROM chips on the motherboard....no upgrading them I'm afraid.
