Default Merom on Core Duo systems?

Will the merom processors be compatible with current core duo laptops? i read somewhere that users will be able to install the merom in core duo laptops, provided that there is a bios update.

im asking because im under a time constraint to order a notebook before Aug3.

I think so. I'm not sure if Intel changed the pin layout for Merom, so if they didn't, then it should be compatible with current Core Duo laptops, with a minor BIOS update. If they did change the pin layout, sorry, you're out of luck.
