"Meh" is all I've really got to say about it.

sounded very good to me:

It’s tough to argue with the numbers - at worst, Intel’s Centrino Duo platform offers the same battery life as the previous generation Centrino, while outperforming it. But at best, Centrino Duo can not only offer better performance than last year’s notebooks, but also longer battery life.

i gotta say, running two cores and getting longer battery life than the Pentium M is very impressive. however, the benchies dont seem that impressive to me. maybe just cause they arent running multithreaded programs...

I mean, it's cool and all, but what's the point? With the inherent design flaws in the core that Intel has admitted to...why buy one? Just wait for whatever the next on (Conroe? Or is that the next desktop chip?) comes out.

Besides that...it's Intel. :p

Conroe will put Intel back in the hunt of the performance crown.
At least intel is taking the steps needed now to get back in the game.

The .65nm P4's are next for intel. They will use them till
the conroe is ready.

LONG LIVE NETBURST!!! :rofl:

Right now the best intel chip if u ask me is the 830D.
It's not a gaming cpu but for the $ it's there best deal going.
Within the next 18 months lots of software will take advantage of it and
the benchmarks look pretty good on the right software.
