I was reading the core 2 solo is a new processor with post pentium efficiency and performance targeting new laptops:

The Acer Timelines and other sexy utlra mobiles use them:

IME the duo's give you 50% more during normal usage, maybe 70% more for some things like compiling and media encoding.
I'd really like to see them added to the Tom's performance charts! :whistle:
