Intel Core Duo CPU Laptops

Intel's New Logo
These laptops are powered by Intel’s new Centrino “Core Duo” Platform (Intel’s page on Centrino Duo Technology).

Note: This page is now obsolete (2008)

Anandtech also published a great breakdown of the technology behind the new platform, as well as a review of the platform itself – performance, battery life, and comparisons between single and dual-core setups.

A very good rundown of the Intel Core Duo platform is available at Wikipedia.

The Core Duo’s replacement, the Core 2 Extreme, could offer as much as 40% more performance – more information at TG Daily.

More Core Duo-powered laptops should start showing up in the next month or so – some companies such as ASUS and Lenovo are taking their current laptop form factors and simply swapping out systemboards which is both good and bad – it does keep the price down, but it doesn’t necessarily take advantage of the Core Duo’s smaller size, lighter weight, lower temperature, longer battery life, etc. etc.
