Lol, funny every time. Duals with one defective core. :na: 

Single core cpu just doesn't cut it anymore. Skip it. :p

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

:lol:  LOL intel must be rich

if you insist on budget, a one core core 2 would be probably the best you are going to get, but....

whats a core 2 triumph, I thought the only tri-cores were phenom quads with a single disabled core. Triumph doesn't sound right to me.

It's really unfounded, but I'm not buying a cpu anywhere near a defective core. Doesn't feel sturdy. :na:

OMG!! the phenom tri-core is more expensive than the quad

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.

Core 2 Solo will be more powerful that a single core P4. But your best bet is a Pentium Dual Core. Its just a Core 2 with both cores just the cache is cut. And they can be OCed easily to 3GHz.

My laptop still is an old Pentium M.
