I've read somewhere that intel rebrands any core 2 duo with 1 defective core as a solo and quads with 1 defective core as core 2 triumph 2 defective cores = core 2 duo and 3 = solo
1 defective = core 2 triumph
2 defective = core 2 duo
3 defective = core 2 solo
This thread has no point. Besides, the new Core Solo, is as far as I know, only for ULV devices, in a BGA format. Still, I wish Intel would make a Core Solo instead of the Celeron for laptops. Hell, they can call it the Celeron for all I care, I just want speed step! Dual core has no place in a laptop, IMO. Pentium M was the pinnacle of laptop cpus as far as power consumption is concerned. Now Intel's atom is supposed to use less power, but by the early benches, it looks as anemic as VIA's C7.
