Regardless of the CPU, I don't think I'd get a Mac.

It'll be interesting to see how they do. Their new Intel Core Duo CPU looks very promising with significant performance boost, especially in the mobile market. The next Centrino based CPU will use the new Intel Centrino Duo.

So the new Core Duo CPU is meant for laptops right, kuz i went on their site and they had it listed under Desktops too...So how does it compare to the X2? They also have VIIV technology... what is that?
