Hello, my name is Pantelis and I´ve got a VGN-TT11XN Sony Vaio. I have one question, Is it possible to change the CPU (processor ) from 1.2 GHz to a better processor ?

Thank you.

Judging by this page
and then this page
I would say your Sony VAIO uses BGA956.

In September 2009, Intel introduced new Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage processors based on Penryn-3M, as Celeron SU2xxx series, Pentium SU4xxx series and Core 2 Duo SU7xxx series, with 1, 2 and 3 MB of active L2 cache. Like the earlier Core 2 Duo SU9xxx series, they are always soldered on using a BGA956 package and have a TDP of only 10 W.
In other words your CPU is soldered on and does not use a socket design for interchangeable options.
