Default Core 2 Duo in Laptops?

I'm seeing Core 2 Duo in Laptops these days... these processors are the same as the ones that are going in the desktops, right? I'm assuming it's because of the incredibly low temperatures the Core 2 Duo's emit...

well yeah cuz they emit low ammounts of heat, they are powerful, and they aren't power hungry.

Hmm... only thing now that stands in the laptops' way of replacing desktops is hdd space.

Yes, except they're slightly modified to produce less heat and use less power (though the Core 2 Duo still has a higher TDP than the Core Duo) while hopefully maintaining similar performance.

TDP...?

The only thing that keeps me from buying a Core 2 Duo laptop is the price and the storage.

Thermal Design Power. So if the CPU's TDP is 30W, it means it can dissapate heat generated by 30W without exceeding the maximum temperature for that part (dissapation of heat can be through passive heat solutions or powered heat solutions like fans). It also means that 30W is the maxiumum amount of power the CPU would draw when running real applications. Of course, manufacturers have different definitions of TDP, as it can fluctuate.

Here is a good article from SilentPCReview (SPCR for short) on TDP.

Uh, yeah lol. Here's an article about 160gb Fujitsu hard-drives in laptops. Instead of writing data horozontially, these drives write data vertically fitting more on a drive. It's pretty neat, but it's probably not going to go mainstream for a while.

Yeah... perpendicular drives, right? I think that's the technology Seagate's new 750GB hdd uses... they're planning on using it for all of their drives.
