i might actually buy a powerbook/ibook if apple gets a good duo processor in there. GC would suck though so i think i'll forget it. But in general, is it worth it to w8 for the dual core yonah's? Im obviously looking for a notebook and max is about $2400. If i do recording (music) would it be better than a pentium m? If they have the 2.33 ghz version then i'll get one no matter what. Hopefully the laptops will have a 2.33 ghz version.

a BIG yes

Yonah will own the mobile market IMO

Yonah will not have much of a life come later this year once Merom comes out. Merom will have 64bit support, better performance, etc.

I dont know, Intel admitted there are design faults in Yonah, it will be fixed in the next Merom core. Yonah probably will put people off and buy dual core Athlon 64 mobile instead.

Uhm. Yeah. Sure.

You really can’t get say anything else - you get better performance, longer battery life and all of this at the same price as last year’s notebooks; Centrino Duo is a no-brainer and it is quite possibly the strongest step into a new year that we have seen from Intel in a very long time.

from the conclusion - a good read: http://www.anandtech.com/mobile/showdoc.aspx?i=2663&p=14
